Spanish translation:=derivacion ventriculoperitoneal, derivacion extracraneal
Explanation:
According to Fernando Navarro: "Evitese el anglicismo "shunt", que puede traducirse, segun el contexto, por derivacion, desviacion, cortocirciuito, comunicacion, fistula o anastomosis." He defines ventriculoperitoneal shut as mentioned above, "derivacion extracraneal" or "derivacion ventriculoperitoneal"

Happy translating! ;o)

shunt, desviación, by-pass ventriculoperitoneal


Explanation:
El Diccionario Stedman de Cs.Médicas lo da como "shunt" directamente, y así lo he oído decir a médicos. Tu mismo texto explica de qué se trata.

Válvula ventriiculoperitoneal.


Explanation:
Válvula, es la forma más habitual de referirse en medicina, a "shunt".
Las propuestas anteriores son también válidas, pero las he oído menos.
