This page was last updated on April 8th, 2024

Frequency of Office Visits

  • Office visits: Initially, frequent office visits are used to monitor for signs of developing hydrocephalus. After frequent initial visits postoperatively, subsequent visits are planned to coincide with scheduled MRIs.

Frequency of Imaging

  • Postoperative imaging: A brain MRI with and without contrast is typically performed during the first 3 days after surgery and then 3, 6, 9, and 12 months after surgery. Subsequent scanning can be done every 6 months for the next 2 years and then yearly thereafter if there has been no recurrence.
