Dr. Klimo Wins Paper of the Year, Two Years in a Row

For the second year in a row, Dr. Paul Klimo was awarded the Pediatrics Paper of the Year by the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS). The paper, “The Preventable Shunt Revision Rate: A Multicenter Evaluation,” was published in Neurosurgery in March 2019. In this paper, Dr. Klimo reviews two years of shunt operations data from participating centers in North America to determine predictors for failure.
