There’s no cure for normal pressure hydrocephalus. But there is a treatment: implanting a shunt to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid from the brain’s ventricles. As your enlarged ventricles decrease in size, you may experience fewer symptoms.
Shunts are implanted silicone and plastic devices. These shunts redirect cerebrospinal fluid to another area of the body. This redirection lets the enlarged ventricles return to a more normal size in an effort to relieve the symptoms of normal pressure hydrocephalus.
