Shunt Before Neuroma Surgery
« on: February 16, 2018, 03:30:05 pm »
How common is it to have a shunt placed before getting the neuroma removed?

My father was diagnosed with hydrocephalus right after the acoustic neuroma was detected in the MRI. The neurosurgeon recommended to get a shunt 4 weeks prior to a neuroma. Has anyone on here had this done?
