Question Massively dilated Ventricles and severe brain damage

My daughter Venya is 2 and half years old now. When she was just 15 days old, was diagnosed with Meningitis and later developed hydrocephalus. Though she had on time treatment yet her brain got severely damaged (about 90%). Her last bilateral VP shunt was done in 2008, still in present MRI pictures her Ventricles are shown as massively dilated. She does not show any symptoms of shunt blockage, her physical health condition is stable and all rehabilition therapies are on. I have two questions. 1) Is it possible for Ventricles once dilated to get back to normal condition completely as they are pressing her brain severely. 2) As most of her brain is damaged, is there any hope from stem therapy in future to regenerate massively damaged brain.
