Depends: There are several medical solutions to attempting to reduce cerebral edema while awaiting resolution of the problem which created it. The problem is that this is generally a manifestation of some other illness. If this remains permanent, then placement of a shunt, usually ventriculo-peritoneal, may be necessary.
