    Brain shunt durability

    How long can a brain shunt remain fully functional before it needs replacement? At age 2 1/2 my Granddaughter had a shunt installed following removal of a brain tumor (benign). She is now 20, and has never had the shunt replaced. I am concerned it should be, or should have been, replaced.
