Clinical observations on the relationship between cerebrospinal fluid pulse pressure and intracranial pressure
SummaryA method is described for monitoring the relationship between CSF pulse pressure and ICP in clinical patients. Highly significant linear relationships were found during 65 continuous ICPExpand

The role of the pulsatile pressure variations in intracranial pressure monitoring
SummaryThe magnitude of the pulsatile intracranial pressure variations (CSF pulse pressure) is determined by the elastance of the craniospinal system and by the magnitude of the pulsatile variationsExpand

Non-invasive Monitoring of ICP in Infants
The anterior fontanelle in infants affords a natural access to the intracranial compartment. Various techniques have been attempted to measure intracranial pressure (ICP) in infants accurately (GaabExpand

The Conflict Between CSF Pulse Pressure and Volume-Pressure Response During Plateau Waves
The authors have previously discussed the analogy between CSF pulse pressure (CSFPP) and volume-pressure response (VPR) in the assessment of intracranial volume-pressure relationships (Avezaat et al.Expand

The Pressure Depth Curve in Anterior Fontanelle Pressure Monitoring
In infants suspected of intracranial pathology it is often desirable to know the level of the intracranial pressure (ICP). Whilst invasive procedures are seldom indicated, the open fontanelle affordsExpand

A New Method of Monitoring Intracranial Volume/Pressure Relationship
The volume/pressure test (VPT) has been reported to yield valuable clinical information additional to that obtained from routine ventricular fluid pressure (VFP) monitoring. It assesses the risksExpand

The Analogy between CSF Pulse Pressure and Volume-Pressure Response
The voIume-pressure (V/P) test is widely used to measure intracranial elastance. However, the test has some disadvantages: it increases the infection hazard, may provoke high intracranial pressureExpand

The Constant Pressure Term (PO) of the Volume-Pressure Relationship. Comparison Between Results of Infusion Test and Pulse Pressure Analysis
The craniospinal volume-pressure relationship is described by most authors as a monoexponential function. We have extended this mono-exponential function with a constant pressure term, P0 (Avezaat etExpand

The CSF Pulse Pressure in Relation to Intracranial Elastance and Failure of Autoregulation
Analogous to the volume-pressure response (VPR), the CSF pulse pressure (CSFPP) is determined by two factors (1): I. the transient increase in cerebral blood volume per cardiac cycle (ΔV); and 2. theExpand

CSF Dynamics in Patients with Suspected Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
Although both the pathophysiology and diagnosis of the so-called normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) syndrome remain the subject of much controversy, most authors agree that disturbed CSF dynamics,Expand
