Calvarial slope affecting accuracy of Ghajar Guide technique for ventricular catheter placement.

OBJECT The Ghajar Guide technique is used to direct a ventricular catheter at a 90° angle to the skull surface at Kocher's point. However, the human calvaria is not completely spherical. Lateral to the sagittal midline, the calvaria slopes downward with individual variation and thereby affects the accuracy of ventricular catheter placement. Accordingly, the… (More)
