    using quotes around things when you google them makes a big difference in the type of results you'll get. i googled the exact phrase "intrauterine shunt" hydrocephalus so that i'd get more specific results.

    i don't have time to go through them right now, but there should be something you can use there. good luck!

    Interesting. I've never seen one and I guess I never will if they feel it's not worth the risk.

    I thought the same thing. I mean, there are those horrible cases of hydrocephalus we've all seen at some point in the NICU and maybe for those it might help. But most of the time a shunt or ventriculostomy after birth works pretty well and is safer so I don't see this becoming a common surgery.
