Plateau-wave phenomenon (I). Correlation between the appearance of plateau waves and CSF circulation in patients with intracranial hypertension.

Abstract

Plateau waves, as described by Lundberg (1960), can often be observed in patients with increased intracranial pressure (ICP) resulting from brain tumours, benign intracranial hypertension and other causes. The clinical significance of the waves, however, is still debated. In this study, the ICP was recorded continuously, the size of the ventricular system… (More)
