Is a VP Shunt needed for CSF leak?
I had a CSF leak repaired after CSF was detected running out of my right ear. Recently CSF was detected in my left ear and that will be repaired as well soon. My neurosurgeon wants to put in a VP shunt whilst doing this second repair.
As I have never had any of the usual symptoms of high intracranial pressure, I wonder if the installation of a shunt is normal procedure when repairing leaks.
