About "hydrocephalus surgery"

Hydrocephalus is the build-up of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles of the brain. The surgical options include:


  1. Shunt – A shunt is surgically inserted into the brain to drain the excess fluid. The one end of the drain is placed in the ventricles of the brain, and the other end in the abdomen or heart chamber, from where the CSF gets absorbed.
  2. Endoscopic third ventriculostomy – It is a surgical procedure, where the surgeon makes a hole in the bottom of the ventricle, which allows CSF to flow out.


The complications associated with the shunt system is that it can malfunction, get blocked, or cause infection. And ventriculostomy can cause bleeding and infection.
