VP Shunt revision
Hi Doctor, My uncle has undergone shunting due to TB Hydrocephalus. But his shunt had to be revised just after two months. Does it happen? Or would he have to keep undergoing shunt revision every 2-3 months? Please help me.

Blockage of shunt is common..... It's not necessary that every two or three months shunt revision is required.... Reason for blockade is important and the surgical technique and hand are important.... Where do you belong to?
