Average life of a shunt

Posted Feb 22 2011 7:09am
I have recently heard the average life of a shunt is 10 years. But my first one worked for 20 years and was still working when surgeons took it out (that part of my story to come very soon).

I have several friends that have had working shunts for 25 plus years. It is very easy to live a fairly normal life with hydrocephalus. Complications have just changed things for me.
