Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) Shunt Survival in Patients Developing Hydrocephalus After Cranial Surgery.

CONCLUSION: Shunt survival was worse in patients who developed hydrocephalus following cranial surgery performed for brain tumors and those who received either steroids or prolonged antibiotic therapy. Thus post-cranial surgery hydrocephalus represents a unique subset of hydrocephalus. PMID: 27161463 [PubMed - in process]
