I hope it will beneficial for you. Dandy Walker Syndrome may be treated with the process of shunting in order to reduce the intracranial pressure. A special tube is placed in the skull, for the purpose of shunting the posterior fosse cyst in order to facilitate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and to curb its excess accumulation. In case of Ventriculoperitoneal problems, it is necessary to shunt the lateral ventricles.
