Default Can't find how shunt, ETV, ETV/CPC surgery is done in detail. Any suggestions?

Non-native English speaker here.

I have been searching the internet for weeks now but I can't seem to find an animated video that comprehensively shows how the three surgeries: Shunt, ETV and ETV/CPC is carried out. Most videos or images online don't go into comprehensive detail, that is where and how the holes are drilled, how the catheter is threaded, where the shunt is kept, how the shunt revisions are done, how the catheters are connected etc.

I was looking for a video similar to the ones produced by Nuclues Medical Media. Here is an example: [Could not post the link, but you could try searching for Nucleus Medical Media on youtube and see one of the surgery animations]

So far I couldn't find such a resource. So even it is a series of 3D images, then that would do as well.

So can someone please suggest an online informational resource that shows how a shunt is placed, how ETV and ETV/CPC is done for adults (50+ age) with hydrocephalus?
