hydrocephalus

There is another procedure that treats hydrocephalus called endoscopic third ventriculostomy that does not require a shunt, though it is my understanding that it accomplishes the same thing. Maybe that is a possibility? It seems like a second opinion might be in order? I would go to a neurosurgeon with lots of experience in hydrocephalus. Good luck.

first we choose to do that only third ventricle endoscopic.. and endoscopic has been done. bt we dont ind much benefits from it.there was an infection in her brain so drs told shunt wont work accordingly..

I’m sorry to hear that, Sumera. What are your options now?

What symptoms did you have prior to ETV? How did you decide to have the surgery?
