I am a 32 y/o woman with a history of pseudotumor cerebri, acquired chiari malformation & syrinx. Ive undergone 8 surgeries for repairs and revisions of my shunts. My doctors dont know why I need 2 shunts or why I still have headaches & fatigue/lightheadedness. I suspect overdrainage. I feel strongly that my VP & LP shunt are failing to properly control the CSF. In recent years Ive read alot about stenting the transverse sinus instead of shunting. But my doctors wont do an angiogram to determine if I am a candidate. They say its too dangerous & causes strokes. Im wondering if there’s truth to that claim and has anyone here had a brain stent that was successful for PTC? Im running out of options here and living in pain & exhaustion every day.
