Acute increase of intracranial pressure (ICP) usually has to be treated with an external ventricular drainage (EVD). Current standard mechanical EVD carry a lot of disadvantages, which hypothetically could be better managed by a newly developed electromechanical EVD. In this report our first preliminary results of such an electromechanical EVD applied in a(More)
Hydrocephalus is characterized by an excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Therapeutically, an artificial pressure relief valve (so-called shunt) is implanted which opens in case of increased intracranial pressure (ICP) and drains CSF into another body compartment. Today, available shunts are of a mechanical nature and drainage depends on the(More)
