Alterations in ventricular size and intracranial pressure caused by sagittal sinus pathology in man.

Abstract

Lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure and ventricular size were determined in six patients with impairment of cerebral venous outflow caused by either sagittal sinus thrombosis or arteriovenous shunting into the sagittal sinus. None of the patients had enlargement of the ventricular system, but all six had elevated CSF pressure (mean, 30 mm Hg). At… (More)
