Intracranial pressure (ICP) has been measured in eight patients with chronic subdural haematomas (CSH) for 24 hours prior to and for 24 hours following evacuation of the haematomas. In all patients ICP was increased prior to surgery (mean: 23 mm Hg), and it rose again to the preoperative level following evacuation of the haematomas in spite of disappearance of most symptoms and signs. In two of these patients and in another eight patients with CSH, colloid osmotic pressures were measured in… CONTINUE READING
