Then, if you perform a shunt insertion operation, will the scars of the operation be seen? Operation done around the head? And can the doctor who treats hydrocephalus tell the patient that the patient will not be able to survive much longer? That is all and thank you.

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We see that our colleagues have already answered your previous questions about hydrocephalus, so we will not repeat too much information about the disease.

Hydrocephalus is a condition where there is a buildup of fluid in the brain cavity so that it can interfere with brain function. This excess fluid must be removed through a surgical insertion of a tube in the head. You can click the following link to our article about Hydrocephalus.

As for whether the surgical scar will be visible, usually it will be visible, but this depends again on the ability of your skin to disguise the wound and whether there is hair growth around it that can disguise the wound.

Then regarding life expectancy, if complications are obtained or not treated as soon as possible, then the possibility of hydrocephalus causing death may occur. However, no doctor can be certain whether a person will die or not until the breathing and brain stem activity has completely stopped. Hope it answers your question.
