The effect of head-down tilt during general anesthesia on intracranial pressure (ICP) dynamics was examined in eight cats. Changes in lateral ventricular pressure (LVP), sagittal sinus pressure (SSP), and effective CSF pressure (ECSFP), which is the driving pressure of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) absorption, were studied in association with a shift from the horizontal prone position to the 20 degrees head-down tilt position. Both LVP and SSP values were significantly (P < 0.01) increased at 10… CONTINUE READING
