There is currently no "cure" for hydrocephalus other than to relieve the pressure with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VP shunt).  Although investigations into the causes and treatment of hydrocephalus have been undertaken, there is currently no "standard" treatment that will consistently prevent the development of hydrocephalus.
