    A few considerations for future research if not already done:Just wondering if Hydrocephalus is genetic? My sister(aged 30 years) has Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus,just had surgery yesterday to have a shunt replacement (last one was 17 years ago), I lost a sister a number of years ago also had SB & H, my first cousin (on fathers side) diagnosed with H when 12 years, another first cousin (fathers side) had a baby girl,had Anencephelus and died.
    Also, I notice that back pain is not a symptom of shunt malfunction yet on both occasions my sister had back pain accompanied with seizures, this caused major delays in treatment, leaving my sisters eye sight with more damage. ?
