Intracranial pressure within a developing intracerebral haemorrhage

Br J Neurosurg. 2001 Apr;15(2):140-1. doi: 10.1080/02688690120036847.


We report the time course of intracranial pressure within a developing intracerebral haemorrhage. Simultaneous readings of intracranial pressure were obtained from a contralateral parenchymal monitor and ventricular fluid pressure monitor. This recording demonstrates the existence of large pressure gradients in patients with expanding mass lesions.
