In short, hydrocephalus is a condition of the brain that results from a build up of excess spinal fluid in the brain’s ventricles. Most people who gets this either acquire it at a very young, or very old age. There are few treatment options, the most common of which is a brain shunt. Brain shunts have the high honor of being the most fallible¬†surgical implant in medical history.
