My friend just had something exploratory done to his brain at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota . They went up through his neck with the little camera trying to figure out why he was having numbness and visual problems. In the process of the exploring, they suddenly saw something that sent him into surgery for a vp shunt. He was in surgery for 9 hours, and is now in ICU . They said that the next 72 hours will tell how well the surgery went. What are the reasons they have done this, and what are the possible outcomes (good and Bad) that we could see after 72 hours in ICU?
