TLDR
Results from the test performed on four patients with intracranial hypertension of unknown cause suggest that the underlying mechanism in this condition is probably an impediment to normal CSF drainage.

Dynamics of the cerebrospinal fluid and the spinal dura mater1
TLDR
The spinal dural sac is a dynamic structure, readily changing its capacity in response to prevailing pressure gradients across its walls, which acts as a reservoir for CSF, which moves to and fro through the foramen magnum in Response to changes in cerebral blood flow.
Delayed radiation necrosis of the brain.
TLDR
Cumulative experience suggests that the risk-to-benefit ratio of radiotherapy becomes increasingly unfavorable for most patients with benign intracranial neoplasms when the standard brain tumor dose of 5000 to 7000 rads is fractionated at greater than 200 rads per day.
Total Cerebral Blood Flow in the Monkey Measured by Hydrogen Clearance
TLDR
The experience suggests that one may reliably measure average total cerebral blood flow in the experimental setting by following the clearance of hydrogen from torcular blood, and this method can be easily combined with the standard hydrogen clearance technique for measuring local tissue blood flow.
Pressure in the sagittal sinus during intracranial hypertension in man.
TLDR
Intracranial pressure (ICP) and sagittal sinus pressure (SSP) were measured simultaneously in 12 patients with brain tumors and secondary intracranial hypertension (ICH) and, as the ICP increased, the difference between the two also increased.
Intracanalicular meningioma with normal tomography. Case report.
TLDR
This case documents the fact that an intracanalicular meningioma may be associated with normal tomograms of the optic canal, and shows that the tumor was strictly intradural and did not involve the surrounding bone at any point.
