MOST HELPFUL POSTS
not sure if that link will work but if you go to wikipedia and look up the medical definition for "shunt" you should get some information. basically it is a tiny tube that doctors can use to strengthen arteries and veins, or at least that's what i got from the doctor's explanation when my great grandma had to have one put in her artery during a bypass surgery a few years ago. she had pneumonia and they found out her artery was closing up.
you could also look it up on webMD.com. i'm sure there'd be even more information there and in much more understandable format than wikipedia.
