Question Please Help . We need Information

Hello together !
i stay in germany and i have a little chihuahua. He is 5 years old and 8 month ago the Dr. say to us that he have a hydrocephalus. The vet wants to do an operation, to put a shunt in order to get the water out of the cephalus.

The question is: has anybody heard about this operation in dogs? I know it in humans and it is not difficult and mostly successful. If anybody has heard about the operation in dogs and the results, who does the dog feal/live with such a shunt afterwards, who are the chances to survive the operation? Please let me know asap. Please provide also a link, if you find one, about this kind of operation.

The dog is at the moment treated with cortison but it is not enough to cope with the problem.

Thank you very much in advance.
