The relationship between intracranial hypertension and basilar artery blood flow is not well known, and it is not yet definite that the reduction of cerebral flow depends on cerebral perfusion pressure rather than microvessel compression. The purpose of the study described here was to investigate the effect of acute intracranial pressure on the basilar flow velocity, the cerebral perfusion pressure, and the systemic arterial pressure. The basilar Doppler signal was recorded continuously in 24… CONTINUE READING
