The theoretical relations between blood pressure (MABP), intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) as well as the new Cerebral Circulation-Pressure Index (CCPI) are presented in the paper. The special nomogram collecting all of these parameters was constructed. CPPI was defined as a quotient of CPP and ICP: [formula: see text] CCPI(More)
An ideal analgesic for patients after craniotomy should neither cause respiratory depression, nor affect intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP). The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of Tramadol (T) on ICP and CPP, as well as to determine its analgetic efficacy in patients (pts) after craniotomy. Thirty five pts aged 16(More)
The indications for the shunting of the patients with NPH are a matter of discussion. The measurement of the outflow resistance during the infusion test is one of the criteria for shunting. The authors present 38 patients with NPH in whom the lumbar constant-infusion test was carried out. The patients with the outflow resistance more then 13 mmHg/ml/min(More)
The authors report a case of a giant aneurysm of the internal carotid artery filling from the left internal carotid artery below the site of branching-off of the posterior communicating artery. The initial neurological, and ophthalmological signs and plain films of the skull suggested presence of an Erdheim's tumour. It is worth stressing that the onset of(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of intracerebral haematoma due to aneurysmal rupture on vasospasm evaluated by transcranial Doppler ultrasound and outcome according to Glasgow Outcome Scale. 368 patients with ruptured intracranial aneurysm were admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery, Medical Academy in Wrocław, between January 1, 1995(More)
The aim of the study was the assessment of prognostic value of CCPI in relation to the results of treatment of patients with increased intracranial pressure after brain tumour operative treatment. The results of treatment of 107 patients with intracerebral tumours according to neurological state at the introduction of treatment (GCS) and initial values of(More)
A retrospective analysis of 142 patients with multiple intracranial aneurysms operated on within eight years (1991-1998) was undertaken. In 82 patients multiple aneurysms were clipped during one procedure in the remaining 60 patients operation was performed in two stages. The clinical state of patients according to Hunt-Hess scale at the admission to the(More)
The aim of our study was to compare the incidence and the time course of vasospasm as well as outcome of patients with tSAH. In group I there were 15 patients treated with nimodipine. Group II consisted of 20 patients in whom nimodipine was not used. All patients suffered from severe head injury, scored 8 points or less according to Glasgow Coma Scale. The(More)
These problems arising during the treatment of increased intracranial pressure (ICP) were analysed on the basis of own clinical material with consideration of different therapeutic methods--pharmacological and aggressive. Statistical analysis (contingency tables) showed that the treatment consisting of dexamethason, mannitol and furosemid was the most(More)
The authors present their 3-years experiences with nimodipine treatment in patient after subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). Nimotop has been used in treatment of SAH in the Department of Neurosurgery since June 1985. During 3-years 220 patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage were admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery in Wroclaw. Till the end of 1989 177(More)
