Effect of head position on cerebrospinal fluid pressure in cats: comparison with artificial model.

AIM To demonstrate that changes in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure in the cranial cavity and spinal canal after head elevation from the horizontal level occur primarily due to the biophysical characteristics of the CSF system, ie, distensibility of the spinal dura. METHODS Experiments in vivo were performed on cats and a new artificial model of the… CONTINUE READING
