Contralateral deafness following unilateral suboccipital brain tumor surgery in a patient with large vestibular aqueduct--case report. (1/123)

A 68-year-old female developed contralateral deafness following extirpation of a left cerebellopontine angle epidermoid cyst. Computed tomography showed that large vestibular aqueduct was present. This unusual complication may have been caused by an abrupt pressure change after cerebrospinal fluid release, which was transmitted through the large vestibular aqueduct and resulted in cochlear damage.  (+info)

Oxygenation of the cat primary visual cortex. (2/123)

Tissue PO2 was measured in the primary visual cortex of anesthetized, artificially ventilated normovolemic cats to examine tissue oxygenation with respect to depth. The method utilized 1) a chamber designed to maintain cerebrospinal fluid pressure and prevent ambient PO2 from influencing the brain, 2) a microelectrode capable of recording electrical activity as well as local PO2, and 3) recordings primarily during electrode withdrawal from the cortex rather than during penetrations. Local peaks in the PO2 profiles were consistent with the presence of numerous vessels. Excluding the superficial 200 microm of the cortex, in which the ambient PO2 may have influenced tissue PO2, there was a slight decrease (4.9 Torr/mm cortex) in PO2 as a function of depth. After all depths and cats were weighted equally, the average PO2 in six cats was 12.8 Torr, with approximately one-half of the values being +info)

The effect of spinal instrumentation on lumbar intradiscal pressure. (3/123)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of spinal instrumentation on the intradiscal pressure (IDP) within the fixed motion segment. In vitro biomechanical testing was performed in six single functional spinal units of fresh calf lumbar spines using a pressure needle transducer. Various loads were applied by a materials testing system device. In addition to intact spine (control), anterior spinal instrumentation (ASI) and pedicle screw fixation (PS) constructs, as well as destabilized spine were tested. Relative to the control, the destabilized spine tended to have an increased IDP; by 15% in axial compression and by 9-36% in flexion-extension. Compared to the control, PS decreased the IDP by 23% in axial loading and 51% in extension loading and increased it by 60% in flexion for each loading. ASI decreased the IDP by 32% in flexion and 1% in extension. Lateral bending produced symmetrical changes of IDP in the control and destabilized spine, but no change in the PS construct. The IDP of the ASI construct was decreased by 77% in ipsilateral bending and increased by 22% in contralateral bending. These results demonstrated that eccentric loading from the spinal instruments increased IDP and significant disc pressure may still exist despite an increase in motion segment stiffness after lumbar stabilization.  (+info)

Spontaneous ventriculostomy: report of three cases revealed by flow-sensitive phase-contrast cine MR imaging. (4/123)

Spontaneous ventriculostomy is a rare condition that occurs with the spontaneous rupture of a ventricle, resulting in a communication between the ventricular system and the subarachnoid space. Three cases of spontaneous ventriculostomy through the floor of the third ventricle that occurred in cases of chronic obstructive hydrocephalus are presented. The communication was identified via flow-sensitive phase-contrast cine MR imaging. Spontaneous ventriculostomy is probably a result of a rupture of the normally thin membrane that forms the floor of the third ventricle and, with long-standing obstructive hydrocephalus, creates an internal drainage pathway that spontaneously compensates for the hydrocephalus.  (+info)

Effects of positive end-expiratory pressure ventilation on cerebral venous pressure with head elevation in dogs. (5/123)

Mechanical ventilation with positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) may prevent venous air embolism in the sitting position because cerebral venous pressure (Pcev) could be increased by the PEEP-induced increase in right atrial pressure (Pra). Whereas it is clear that there is a linear transmission of the PEEP-induced increase in Pra to Pcev while the dog is in the prone position, the mechanism of the transmission with the dog in the head-elevated position is unclear. We tested the hypothesis that a Starling resistor-type mechanism exists in the jugular veins when the head is elevated. In one group of dogs, increasing PEEP linearly increased Pcev with the dog in the prone position (head at heart level, slope = 0.851) but did not increase Pcev when the head was elevated. In another group of dogs, an external chest binder was used to produce a larger PEEP-induced increase in Pra. Further increasing Pra increased Pcev only after Pra exceeded a pressure of 19 mmHg (break pressure). This sharp inflection in the upstream (Pcev)-downstream (Pra) relationship suggests that this may be caused by a Starling resistor-type mechanism. We conclude that jugular venous collapse serves as a significant resistance in the transmission of Pra to Pcev in the head-elevated position.  (+info)

Isolated dilation of the trigono-inferior horn--four case reports. (6/123)

Four patients presented with isolated dilation of the trigono-inferior horn associated with either mass lesion at the trigone of the lateral ventricle or with shunt over-drainage. We investigated clinical symptoms, course, and neuroradiological findings of these cases. The pressure of the isolated ventricle was measured or estimated at surgery in all cases. The common symptoms were recent memory disturbance and contralateral homonymous hemianopia. Contralateral hemiparesis was observed occasionally. Rapid deterioration of the isolation caused uncal herniation in one case. Comma-shaped dilation of the inferior horn was observed in all cases. Midline shift was not conspicuous except in one case. Intraventricular pressure at surgery was 18 cmH2O, 35 cmH2O, 3 cmH2O, and within normal range. These cases had very similar clinical symptoms and neuroradiological findings. The pathophysiology of isolation suggested three types of isolation (high-, normal-, and low-pressure isolation), depending on the pressure of the isolated ventricle. The isolation of trigono-inferior horn is an important clinical entity as it may cause uncal herniation in patients with high-pressure lesions.  (+info)

How much work is required to puncture dura with Tuohy needles? (7/123)

The effects of needle bevel orientation and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure on dural displacement and force required to penetrate cadaveric dura were studied using 40 samples. A constant hydrostatic pressure was applied to the subdural surface, either high or low, simulating the sitting and lateral positions. A 17-gauge Tuohy needle was advanced through the dura with the bevel oriented parallel or perpendicular to dural fibres. Travel distance and peak force at which dural penetration occurred were measured under both pressure conditions. The work required to produce dural penetration was calculated. Greater force and work were required to penetrate dura in the perpendicular orientation (P < 0.05), regardless of the subdural pressure exerted. Dural displacement was similar under both pressure conditions.  (+info)

CSF flow measurement in syringomyelia. (8/123)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: CSF circulation has been reported to represent a major factor in the pathophysiology of syringomyelia. Our purpose was to determine the CSF flow patterns in spinal cord cysts and in the subararachnoid space in patients with syringomyelia associated with Chiari I malformation and to evaluate the modifications of the flow resulting from surgery. METHODS: Eighteen patients with syringomyelia were examined with a 3D Fourier encoding velocity imaging technique. A prospectively gated 2D axial sequence with velocity encoding in the craniocaudal direction in the cervical region was set at a velocity of +/- 10 cm/s. Velocity measurements were performed in the larger portion of the cysts and, at the same cervical level, in the pericystic subarachnoid spaces. All patients underwent a surgical procedure involving dural opening followed by duroplasty. Pre- and postoperative velocity measurements of all patients were taken, with a mean follow-up of 10.2 months. We compared the velocity measurements with the morphology of the cysts and with the clinical data. Spinal subarachnoid spaces of 19 healthy subjects were also studied using the same technique. RESULTS: A pulsatile flow was observed in syrinx cavities and in the pericystic subarachnoid spaces (PCSS). Preoperative maximum systolic cyst velocities were higher than were diastolic velocities. A systolic velocity peak was well defined in all cases, first in the cyst and then in the PCSS. Higher systolic and diastolic cyst velocities are observed in large cysts and in patients with a poor clinical status. After surgery, a decrease in cyst volume (evaluated on the basis of the extension of the cyst and the compression of the PCSS) was observed in 13 patients. In the postoperative course, we noticed a decrease of systolic and diastolic cyst velocities and a parallel increase of systolic PCSS velocities. Diastolic cyst velocities correlated with the preoperative clinical status of the patients and, after surgery, in patients with a satisfactory foraminal enlargement evaluated on the basis of the visibility of the cisterna magna. CONCLUSION: CSF flow measurement constitutes a direct evaluation for the follow-up of patients with syringomyelic cysts. Diastolic and systolic cyst velocities can assist in the evaluation of the efficacy of surgery.  (+info)

Authors: Fleischman D, Allingham RR.. Glaucoma is one of the most common causes of blindness in the world. Well-known risk factors include age, race, a positive family history and elevated intraocular pressures. A newly proposed risk factor is decreased cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP). This concept is based on the notion that a pressure differential exists across the lamina cribrosa, which separates the intraocular space from the subarachnoid fluid space. In this construct, an increased translaminar pressure difference will occur with a relative increase in elevated intraocular pressure or a reduction in CSFP. This net change in pressure is proposed to act on the tissues within the optic nerve head, potentially contributing to glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Similarly, patients with ocular hypertension who have elevated CSFPs, would enjoy a relatively protective effect from glaucomatous damage. This review will focus on the current literature pertaining to the role of CSFP in glaucoma. ...
Cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFp) provides vital information in various neurological abnormalities including hydrocephalus, intracranial hypertension and brain tumors. Currently, CSFp is measured invasively through implanted catheters within the brain (ventricles and parenchyma) which is associated with a risk of infection and morbidity. In humans, the cerebrospinal fluid communicates indirectly with the ocular circulation across the lamina cribrosa via the optic nerve subarachnoid space. It has been shown that a relationship between retinal venous pulsation, intraocular pressure (IOP) and CSFp exists with the amplitude of retinal venous pulsation being associated with the trans-laminar pressure gradient (i.e. IOP-CSFp). In this study we use this characteristic to develop a non-invasive approach to estimate CSFp. 15 subjects were included in this study. Dynamic retinal venous diameter changes and IOP were measured and fitted into our model. Artificial neural networks (ANN) were applied to ...
Authors: Silverman CA, Linstrom CJ.. We describe tympanic membrane displacement (TMD) testing for non-invasive estimation of intracranial pressure (ICP). With the TMD test, displacement of the tympanic membrane of the middle ear is recorded during elicitation of the acoustic middle-ear reflex (AR). Increased intracranial/perilymphatic pressure displaces the resting stapes footplate laterally so that TMD during the acoustic reflex is medial. Decreased intracranial/perilymphatic pressure displaces the baseline stapes footplate position medially (inward) so that TMD during the AR is lateral. The TMD typically is bidirectional when intracranial/perilymphatic pressure is normal. Discrepant findings have been reported for the sensitivity of the TMD test to ICP as the regression of TMD on invasive measurement of the ICP reveals substantial intersubject variability and overlap among patient and control groups. Large-sample research on TMD test performance in healthy persons and patients with various ...

Case: A 56 year old man presented with new onset headaches with visual symptoms. Physical examination was normal apart from asymmetrical papilledema and reduced visual acuity 6/9 bilaterally. CSF opening pressure was 26 cm H2O. CTV showed partially recanalised thrombosis in the superior sagittal sinus and the right sigmoid and transverse sinuses which appeared chronic. His headaches initially improved with propranolol but he continued to complain of visual symptoms; repeat CSF opening pressure was 31 cm H2O and repeat CTV was reported as, more occlusive. He was therefore anti-coagulated and treated with acetazolamide.. Six weeks after starting treatment, ophthalmological assessment found worsening visual fields despite reduction in disc swelling on OCT. CSF pressure remained elevated at 30 cm H2O. Repeat CTV and 4D CTA identified a type IIB occipital dural AV fistula around the thrombosed venous sinuses, causing occipital lobe congestion; the likely cause of the visual field defects.. The ...
Blood pressure and intraocular pressure are reported in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg); cerebrospinal fluid pressure is reported as centimeters of water (cm H2O). The pascal (newton per square meter [N/m2]) is the recommended SI unit for pressure but generally is not used for reporting these common physiologic pressure measurements. Partial pressure of gases (eg, of oxygen and carbon dioxide) may be reported as millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or as kilopascals (kPa).

Background: Many aspects of CSF dynamics are poorly understood due to the difficulties involved in quantification and visualization. In particular, there is debate surrounding the route of CSF drainage. Our aim was to quantify CSF flow, volume, and drainage route dynamics in vivo in young and aged spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) using a novel contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) method.Methods: ICP was recorded in young (2-5 months) and aged (16 months) SHR. Contrast was administered into the lateral ventricles bilaterally and sequential CT imaging was used to visualize the entire intracranial CSF system and CSF drainage routes. A customized contrast decay software module was used to quantify CSF flow at multiple locations.Results: ICP was significantly higher in aged rats than in young rats (11.52 ± 2.36 mmHg, versus 7.04 ± 2.89 mmHg, p = 0.03). Contrast was observed throughout the entire intracranial CSF system and was seen to enter the spinal canal and cross the cribriform plate ...

Five in vitro models were constructed which were representative of various pathologies of the spinal canal (SC) associated with syringomyelia (SM). The models were subjected to a cough type flow impulse while monitoring the pressure environment in the syrinx and subarachnoid space (SAS) regions of the model. The results indicated that conditions can arise during a cough which would provide pressure forces to encourage cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) movement into the syrinx cavity. The flow obstruction (stenosis) acted as an inflection point for transmural pressure (TP) in which the far region of the syrinx was expanded and the near region was compressed. In the case when a stenosis was present, but no syrinx had formed, the longitudinal pressure gradient and pulse pressures were highest on the SC. However, when a syrinx was present, the pressures were reduced, but still pathological. The primary point of pressure gradients in all of the experiments was the stenosis which caused large pressure ...
While research in animal models of spinal cord injury have provided many promising insights, human studies have failed to produce effective therapies. We propose to investigate the drug Minocycline (a metalloproteinase inhibitor) for the treatment of spinal cord injured patients aiming to limit neurological injury and improve neurological outcome. This drug influences several secondary injury mechanisms implicated in spinal cord injury and has been effective in improving outcome after spinal cord injury in animal models. We also propose to examine the safety and feasibility of spinal cord perfusion pressure augmentation with a protocol of IV fluids and inotrope medications versus standard maintenance of mean arterial pressure in subjects who exhibit a decrease in perfusion pressure to less than 75 mmHg. The purpose of this pilot study is 1) to evaluate the feasibility of a clinical trial protocol for Minocycline in patients with acute spinal cord injury, and 2) to ensure adequate drug dosing and ...
Purpose: Retrospective studies from our laboratory have identified low cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP) as a risk factor for glaucoma. The low CSFP will presumably be reflected in a proportionally lowered intracranial pressure (ICP). Unfortunately, there are no existing animal models to investigate the role of ICP and the glaucoma phenotype. In the current study, we developed a rat model that can be used to manipulate ICP, and eventually be used to study the role of ICP on optic neuropathy.. Methods: Brown Norway rats (n=3, retired breeders, age ,8 months, weight , 300 g) were surgically implanted with a 20 gauge cannula into the lateral ventricle. The cannula was held in place by dental cement and secured to the skull with 4 screws. An external 3 mm post was connected to PE60 tubing protected by a flexible metal tether. The tether was connected to a swivel mount that enabled movement within the cage. The tubing was attached to a pressure transducer connected to a computer that recorded ICP ...

... s are sacs filled with cerebrospinal fluid that most often affect nerve roots in the sacrum, the group of bones at the base of the spine. These cysts (also known as meningeal or perineural cysts) can compress nerve roots, causing lower back pain, sciatica (shock-like or burning pain in the lower back, buttocks, and down one leg to below the knee), urinary incontinence, headaches (due to changes in cerebrospinal fluid pressure), constipation, sexual dysfunction, and some loss of feeling or control of movement in the leg and/or foot. Pressure on the nerves next to the cysts can also cause pain and deterioration of surrounding bone. Tarlov cysts can be diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI); however, it is estimated that 70% of the cysts observed by MRI cause no symptoms. Tarlov cysts may become symptomatic following shock, trauma, or exertion that causes the buildup of cerebrospinal fluid.

An accurate and reproducible method for measuring the volume of the cranial CSF spaces was developed in the MRI unit in Glasgow by Dr. B. Condon in 1986. Using this MRI method the total cranial, cortical sulcal, ventricular and posterior fossa CSF volumes could be accurately measured, whereas only ventricular CSF volume could be estimated by previous techniques. The aim of this thesis was firstly to examine the technique critically and to reduce factors that might affect the accuracy or reproducibility of CSF volume measurement; secondly, to determine the normal range of CSF volume; thirdly, to study physiological factors that might influence the cranial CSF volume; and lastly to assess the research and clinical potential of these measurements in conditions where the CSF volumes might be altered. The original technique was modified. The accuracy of the method was improved by using 0.9% sodium chloride as a calibration reference solution, rather than water, as saline was found to produce a signal ...

The present disclosure relates generally connectors for interconnecting a conduit of a fluid pressure device to an interface configured to deliver a fluid of the fluid pressure device to a patient. A connector includes a body portion configured for fluid connection to the conduit of the fluid pressure device; and a first branch and a second branch each extending from and fluidly connected to the body portion, wherein each branch is configured for fluid connection to the interface. A concavity is formed at an interface between each of the body portions, the first branch and the second branch.
For constant IOP (setting A I = 0 mm Hg), the model prediction of the channel constriction in the eye compartment (region I) is illustrated as the solid line in Figure 2a as a function of time over a complete period of ICP oscillation (Fig. 2a, dashed line), with a mean IOP of P I = 18.0 mm Hg and a mean ICP of P III = 0 mm Hg. For these parameter values, the wall of the vessel in compartment I exhibited a small amplitude oscillation of a frequency identical to that of the ICP but a quarter cycle out of phase (Fig. 2a, dashed line). However, when the mean IOP was increased to P I = 18.5 mm Hg, the vessel wall in compartment I exhibited a transient violent oscillation of much higher frequency than that of the ICP pulsation (Fig. 2b), consistent with the onset of RVP in the vein at the optic disc. The critical value of IOP where onset was observed is a function of ICP but also the RBF, Q, the vein diameter d and the vessel tension T. The dependency on each of these parameters is explored in the ...

Optic nerve sheath ultrasound is a noninvasive method for the assessment of the risk of raised ICP. The subarachnoid spaces surrounding the optic nerve communicate with the intracranial cavity and changes in cerebrospinal fluid pressure are transmitted along the optic nerve sheath.20 In the anterior part of the optic nerve and particularly in the retrobulbar segment, the nerve is only surrounded by orbital fat. The retrobulbar optic nerve sheath is therefore distensible and can inflate in case of raised cerebrospinal fluid pressure. Comparing ocular ultrasonography with gold standard measures of ICP (invasive devices), values of ONSD above 5.8 mm have been shown to be associated with a 95% risk of raised ICP (i.e. , more than 20 mmHg).13 Such values were obtained in 19% of our preeclamptic patients, suggesting a substantial incidence of raised ICP in this population. However, we were not able to show any relationship between preeclampsia severity and the magnitude of ONSD enlargement. This can ...
The concentration of extracellular molecules sampled is influenced by recovery-that is, the relation between the true extracellular concentration and the concentration found in the sample collected. Recovery depends on many factors, the most important being membrane length and perfusion rate. Two different membrane lengths and a wide range of perfusion rates have been used in previous studies. Additionally, the concentration of metabolites and amino acids differs between different areas of the brain. As most previous studies have been done in patients with different pathological conditions and with a juxtacortical placement of the microdialysis catheter, there is a lack of comparable normal values for human brain metabolism. The interpretation of our results must therefore be restricted to the patterns in metabolite concentrations and their alterations.. The pattern of baseline values on day 1 of our study-that is, before manipulation of the CSF system-were consistent with disrupted energy ...

Spinal CSF leaks in SIH, which can be detected by myelography in some cases, cause loss of CSF volume, which some investigators believe results in the changes seen on brain imaging.10,11 Given the known relationship between pressure and volume in a closed system, one would expect that these imaging signs of SIH would also be correlated with low CSF pressure, another common finding in SIH. To the contrary, however, our investigation shows that while the presence of ≥1 brain imaging sign is relatively common in patients with SIH, there is weak correlation between individual brain or myelographic imaging signs and a patients CSF pressure. As a result, discordance between the expected imaging signs and the finding of low CSF pressure is routinely encountered.. This discordance indicates that the imaging findings associated with SIH are not uniformly accompanied by a low-pressure state. Furthermore, it reinforces the need to pursue the diagnosis by using a combination of CSF pressure measurement, ...

Intracranial epidural pressure (EDP) was recorded in 29 patients admitted with ruptured saccular aneurysms, but unfit for immediate surgery. In 10 patients a total of 13 recurrent hemorrhages were recorded; the average time before rerupture was 7.7 days after the last hemorrhage. Ten of the rebleedings started from intracranial pressure levels at or below 400 mm H2O whereas three started from higher prerupture levels. The observations indicate an increasing risk of rebleeding as the epidural pressure decreases toward normal pressure. Most repeat hemorrhages are arrested at EDP levels about that of the diastolic blood pressure. The resulting reduced pressure gradient across the aneurysm wall is important in the arrest of hemorrhage and the maintenance of hemostasis. Measurement of internal carotid artery blood flow during the acute stage of recurrent hemorrhage shows marked changes in blood flow pattern. Arrest of blood flow occurred only at the end of diastole; forward flow occurred only during ...

Many patients appreciate having a hands-on approach to their health. The session is very relaxing and can be more efficient if the patient falls asleep. Ive never had a patient that found that to be a problem. Most sessions are about 45 minutes, though it can be used for just seconds. Do not expect one session to address and correct everything. We are complex beings with many deep-seeded "misalignments." Craniosacral therapys effects just BEGIN in office, and their effects continue to work days later. Therapists suggest setting appointments once a month to even once a week depending on how acute the condition is, or how much progress you made. *.

Purpose: Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) is a clinical diagnosis with no formal definition. Textbooks describe NPH as a clinical triad of gait abnormality, dementia, and urinary incontinence. Few patients present with all three symptoms, forcing the clinician to rely on a "preponderance of evidence" approach, which involves weighing triad symptoms with radiological findings, Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) opening pressure, response to Tap Test, external lumbar CSF drainage, lumbar infusion, and finally shunting. Radiological findings in NPH are limited to enlarged ventricles out of proportion to sulcal atrophy, callosal angles greater than 40 degrees, and ventricles with Evans ratios greater than 0.3. When radiologists evaluate suspected NPH patients they are limited to excluding disease, as opposed to searching for any particular finding. In this study we used Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) to determine if differences can be identified on a group basis between NPH and normal groups to see if ...
Severe acute headache is a common presenting symptom to an accident and emergency department. Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is an increasingly recognised cause of these symptoms and has characteristic clinical and imaging findings. SIH is characterised by headache worse on standing, low opening cerebrospinal fluid pressures at lumbar puncture and uniform pachymeningeal enhancement with gadolinium enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, all in the absence of dural trauma. Atypical presentations occur and severe neurological decline can rarely be associated with this condition. A review of five patients presenting recently to our institution with classical imaging findings together with a review of the literature is presented. ...
We report a case of POEMS syndrome in a 20-year-old patient diagnosed after visiting an eye clinic with a chief complaint of reduced visual acuity. A male university student aged 20 years was referred to our department complaining of blurred vision in both eyes that had persisted for 1 month. He also noted headache, nausea, and paresthesia in the lower extremities around the same time. The visual acuity of his right and left eye was 20/40 and 20/20, respectively. Optic disc edema and serous retinal detachment were present. Brain magnetic resonance imaging showed no intracranial abnormalities, while elevated cerebrospinal fluid pressure, reduced nerve conduction velocity in both lower extremities, hepatosplenomegaly, M proteinemia, high blood VEGF levels, osteoblastic and osteolytic changes in the spine, and atypical plasma cells in bone lesions were noted. From the above findings, the patient was diagnosed with POEMS syndrome. He received high-dose dexamethasone, thalidomide, and radiotherapy on ...
Postoperative paraplegia is a devastating complication of inferior descending thoracic (iDTA) and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (TAAA) operation. Despite refinements in surgical technique for spinal protection, the risk of postoperative neurologic deficit remains significant. Postoperative paraplegia in endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) was improved remarkably than conventional operations, but this method has an incidence of 5%. Cerebrospinal fluid drainage (CSFD) and dosage of Naloxone might be effective to protect spinal cord from ischemia. But these adjuncts are not clear yet in EVAR. A purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of CSFD on the incidence of spinal cord injury after EVAR of iDTA and TAAA. [Method] 625 patients received EVAR from January 1996 to March 2007. In these patients, the cases that stent-graft ending was inserted in periphery ahead of Th12 were 93. The average age was 73.4 years. Preoperative complications included 10 cases of cerebrovascular disorder, 9 cases ...
Intracranial fluid pressure is measured as a function of a characteristic or characteristics of an eardrum. Either or both of the displacement of the eardrum when the stapedius muscle is stimulated or the aural acoustic compliance of the eardrum is measured and provided the cochlear aqueduct is open this will give an indication of intracranial fluid pressure without surgery. Acoustic compliance is measured under conditions of tympanometry but the tympanometry facility is disabled during displacement measurement. The data obtained by the method of the invention may be compared with reference data obtained from the same patient or in clinical trials to provide a real-time record of intracranial fluid pressure changes. Preferably eardrum displacement is used as a baseline measure and acoustic compliance measurement records short-term variation, the two records being combined by computer. Reference data may be input to the computer to update the information displayed. This reference data may include known

TY - JOUR. T1 - Increased endoneurial fluid pressure in experimental lead neuropathy. AU - Low, Phillip A.. AU - Dyck, Peter James. PY - 1977/12/1. Y1 - 1977/12/1. N2 - THE endoneurial compartment of peripheral nerve is relatively inaccessible because of its small size and is maintained in a specialised environment by means of a perineurial barrier1, a blood-nerve barrier2 and a cerebrospinal fluid barrier. We have gained access to the endoneurial compartment of mammalian peripheral nerve by means of small polyethylene matrix (PEM) capsules and have recorded endoneurial fluid pressure (EFP) using an active servo null system3. The solid PEM capsules have pores of approximately 60 μm which facilitate entry of fluid into the interstices and connecting polyethylene tubing, but unlike hollow capsules4, are not invaded by connective tissue. We have used PEM capsules to make serial measurements of EFP in control and lead-fed rats and watched the pathological changes. We did this because of the ...

The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum, or tailbone area. This system functions in the production, circulation and re-absorption of CSF. Cerebrospinal fluid maintains the physiological environment in which your brain and nervous system develop, live and function. In other words, CSF nourishes the brain and spinal cord.. Normally the production and re-absorption of cerebrospinal fluid produces a continuous rise and fall of fluid pressure within the CranioSacral System. The semi-closed hydraulic system expands and contracts to some extent with this rhythmical pressure fluctuation. Pressure is prevented from building up excessively within the CranioSacral System. Since this vital system influences the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord, an imbalance or restriction in it could ...
In 1837 the anatomist and physiologist J. E. Purkinje described the presence of some particular granular bodies in the brain of elderly patients. These bodies, named corpora amylacea (CA), were initially considered to have no pathological significance and for a long time were thought to be irrelevant. In recent decades, however, this perception has changed. With the advances in technology, CA have been studied from different perspectives and a large number of theories regarding their nature have been put forward. Unfortunately, none of these theories have been demonstrated conclusively and CA remain intriguing and mysterious bodies. In the present study, several features of CA are described and a vision of their function is proposed which may have implications for clinical practice. There is a consensus that the main components of CA are polymerized hexoses (primarily glucose). Other components originating in neurons, astrocytes, or oligodendrocytes, from blood or of fungal or viral origin, have ...

In my experience, SBS restrictions are common and occasionally can cause the entire craniosacral system to lock down upon itself, thus distorting not only the entire head and face but the body, too. Most SBS strains are less disruptive, yet even a minute disturbance in position or motion of the SBS can cause havoc in any number of brain or body systems. When we help our clients release restrictions of their SBS, then their craniosacral system, their central nervous system and their body as whole can be less burdened by neurological or vascular distress. As a result their tissues, fluids and cellular processes that had been previously hampered, can regain the freedom that is essential in order to work optimally, correct dysfunction, decrease or eliminate symptoms and improve overall health and well-being..

Yes. The air pressure is independent of z at the interface. The normal stress at the interface between the air and the liquid has to be continuous, so, it follows from this that the fluid pressure at the interface is equal to the air pressure. Thus, at the interface at least, the fluid pressure is not varying with z. From the force balance in the x direction, the derivative of pressure with respect to x is also zero. So the pressure is also independent of x. So, throughout the falling film, the fluid pressure is equal to the air pressure ...

The U.S. Department of Energys National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) established an Extreme Drilling Lab to engineer effective and efficient drilling technologies viable at depths greater than 20,000 feet. This paper details the challenges of ultra-deep drilling, documents reports of decreased drilling rates as a result of increasing fluid pressure and temperature, and describes NETLs Research and Development activities. NETL is invested in laboratory-scale physical simulation. Their physical simulator will have capability of circulating drilling fluids at 30,000 psi and 480 °F around a single drill cutter. This simulator will not yet be operational by the planned conference dates; therefore, the results will be limited to identification of leading hypotheses of drilling phenomena and NETLs test plans to validate or refute such theories. Of particular interest to the Extreme Drilling Labs studies are the combinatorial effects of drilling fluid pressure, drilling fluid properties, ...

Highly innovative specialty companies define and epitomize the requirement for treatments of these conditions with micro sized and ultra-precision components and assemblies. Anyone who has ever worn corrective contacts and/or been on the bad end of a windy day near an outdoor fire pit, you have probably noticed that the smallest speck in your eye can cause you severe pain. The reasons for intraocular implants being micro-sized then are to provide the eye an extreme level of comfort with the least invasive, yet compliant implants in the human body. The thin and delicate structures of the eye require paper thin and flexible components that are nonetheless strong enough to withstand extreme fluid pressures in and behind the eye. The successful creation of a device that is both paper thin and strong is an engineering challenge that requires the skill and expertise that only micro molding and nano surface specialty companies can understand and implement ...
A traction control system for an automotive vehicle comprises, a brake fluid pressure control actuator associated with at least driven wheels for reducing traction created through the driven wheels, and sensors for monitoring an acceleration-slip state of at least one of the driven wheels. A recovery control unit is arranged for deriving a degree of turn of the vehicle, and for deriving a rate of change in the vehicle turning degree. The recovery control unit is responsive to the change-rate in the turning degree during an acceleration-slip control, for controlling traction in a transient state shifting from turning to straight-ahead driving, in such a manner as to increase a recovery amount of driving torque caused by the driven wheel as the turning degree is weakened.
Many patients appreciate having a hands-on approach to their health. The session is very relaxing and can be more efficient if the patient falls asleep. Ive never had a patient that found that to be a problem. Most sessions are about 45 minutes, though it can be used for just seconds. Do not expect one session to address and correct everything. We are complex beings with many deep-seeded "misalignments." Craniosacral therapys effects just BEGIN in office, and their effects continue to work days later. Therapists suggest setting appointments once a month to even once a week depending on how acute the condition is, or how much progress you made. *. Craniosacral therapy is a wonderful tool to address the WHOLE body. Doctors need to address mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies in addition to the physical body. After all, we want to find the cause of a patients ailment...and what if that cause is not physically related? Wanna get trained?. ...

Idiopathic Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (INPH) is a condition affecting gait, cognition and continence. Radiological examination reveals enlarged ventricles of the brain. A shunt that drains CSF from the ventricles to the abdomen often improves the symptoms. Much research on INPH has been focused on identifying tests that predict the outcome after shunt surgery. As part of this quest, there are attempts to find measurement methods of intracranial parameters that are valid, reliable, tolerable and safe for patients.. Todays technologies for intracranial pressure (ICP) measurement are invasive, often requiring a burr-hole in the skull. Recently, a method for non-invasive ICP measurements was suggested: the Pulsatile Index (PI) calculated from transcranial Doppler data assessed from the middle cerebral artery. In this thesis the relation between PI and ICP was explored in INPH patients during controlled ICP regulation by lumbar infusion. The confidence interval for predicted ICP, based on ...
Background: There is little knowledge about the factors influencing the long-term outcome after surgery for idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH).. Objective: To evaluate the effects of reoperation due to complications and of vascular comorbidity (hypertension, diabetes, stroke and heart disease) on the outcome in iNPH patients, 2-6 years after shunt surgery.. Methods: We included 979 patients from the Swedish Hydrocephalus Quality Registry (SHQR), operated on for iNPH during 2004-2011. The patients were followed yearly by mailed questionnaires, including a self-assessed modified Rankin Scale (smRS) and a subjective comparison between their present and their preoperative health condition. The replies were grouped according to the length of follow-up after surgery. Data on clinical evaluations, vascular comorbidity, and reoperations were extracted from the SHQR.. Results: On the smRS, 40% (38-41) of the patients were improved 2-6 years after surgery and around 60% reported their general ...

Acta Neurochir (2017) 159:987-994. Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus is predominantly a disease of the elderly. By its nature, many of those who present to clinic are in advanced old age with multiple comorbidities. Majority of patients treated are younger than 80 years old. We present the clinical outcomes and complication rates of patients over the age of 80 years at the time of operation, during the past 11 years at a single institution.. Methods Retrospective analysis of clinical records of all patients over the age of 80 years, who presented to our institution between 2006 and 2016.. Results were analysed for co-morbidities, immediate and delayed complications, change in mobility/cognitive function post shunting of hydrocephalus.. Results 39 patients (24 male, 15 female) met criteria. Mean [SD] age at the time of shunt insertion was 84 years (+/− 3.22) (range 80-94). No patients developed immediate CSF infection or sub-dural collection, or extended length of stay due to surgical or ...

Background/objective: Little is known about the long-term clinical course and management of patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) treated by cere-brospinal fluid (CSF) shunting. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed records of 55 patients diagnosed with idiopathic NPH (INPH) and treated with CSF shunts, all of whom were followed for more than 3 years after the original shunt surgery. At each annual follow-up visit, the patient was assessed by Folstein Mini Mental State Examination, detailed clinical evaluation of gait and assessment of headache, cognition, gait or urination, as assessed by the patient and relatives. Results: The mean duration of follow-up was 5.9 ± 2.5 years. There was an overall sustained improvement among all symptoms. Gait showed the highest maintenance of improvement over baseline (83% at 3 years and 87% at the last analysed follow-up of 7 years), cognition showed intermediary improvement (84% and 86%, respectively), and urinary incontinence showed the least ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Increased CSF stroke volume through the cerebral aqueduct has been proposed as a possible indicator of positive surgical outcome in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus; however, consensus is lacking. In this prospective study, we aimed to compare CSF flow parameters in patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus with those in healthy controls and change after shunt surgery and to investigate whether any parameter could predict surgical outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-one patients with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus and 21 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were prospectively included and examined clinically and with MR imaging of the brain. Eighteen patients were treated with shunt implantation and were re-examined clinically and with MR imaging the day before the operation and 3 months postoperatively. All MR imaging scans included a phase-contrast sequence. RESULTS: The median aqueductal CSF stroke volume was ...
Dural ectasia is widening or ballooning of the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord. This usually occurs in the lumbosacral region, as this is where the cerebrospinal fluid pressure is greatest, but the spinal canal can be affected in any plane. Most common symptoms include lower back pain, headaches, weakness, numbness (anesthesia) above and below the involved limb, leg pain, and sometimes there can be rectal and genital pain. Bowel and bladder dysfunction, urinary retention or even incontinence may occur. The symptoms are usually exacerbated by upright posture and often but not always relieved by lying down. However, in many patients it is asymptomatic. Present in the MARFAN SYNDROME It is common in Marfan syndrome, occurring in 63-92% of people with the syndrome. Dural ectasia may also occur in Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, neurofibromatosis type I, ankylosing spondylitis, and trauma. Liu, CC; Lin, YC; Lo, CP; Chang, TP (June 2011).

Value of Targeted Epidural Blood Patch and Management of Subdural Hematoma in Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension: Case Report and Review of the Literature. Rettenmaier LA1, Park BJ1, Holland MT2, Hamade YJ2, Garg S3, Rastogi R3, Reddy CG4. Author information Abstract BACKGROUND: Spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH) is a more common than previously noted condition (1-2.5 per 50,000 persons)…
Intracranial hypotension is traditionally attributed to leakage of CSF from a dural defect along the craniospinal axis, which can occur spontaneously, such as due to rupture of Tarlov cyst1 or dural weakness in connective tissue disorder.2 Intracranial hypotension can also be precipitated by direct trauma or iatrogenic causes such as a lumbar puncture. The commonest cause, however, is a spontaneous defect of the dura (spontaneous intracranial hypotension [SIH]), though a trivial traumatic event can be elicited retrospectively in around one third of such patients.3 4 The most common sites of leakage identified were at the cervicothoracic junction and thoracic region of the spinal canal.1 5 In the absence of a dural defect, a recent alternative hypothesis proposes increased CSF absorption from negative pressure gradient in the inferior vena cava.6 In both instances, CSF hypovolaemia is the main feature and primary cause of the related clinical and imaging findings ...

AU - Gottfried, Oren N.. AU - Brockmeyer, Douglas L.. PY - 2006/12/1. Y1 - 2006/12/1. N2 - The authors report an unusual case of engorged epidural veins causing progressive cervical myelopathy after long-term cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) shunt therapy and intracranial hypotension. An 18-year-old woman, who had previously undergone shunt placement with a distal slit valve for a porencephalic cyst when 2 years of age, presented with progressive spastic quadriparesis, numbness, and gait difficulty. Postural headaches were absent and a lumbar puncture revealed low CSF pressure. Neuroimaging disclosed markedly engorged anterior epidural veins causing compression of the cervical spinal cord. The slit-valve shunt system was surgically removed and an external drain was placed. The patients CSF pressure was ...

  • Because CSF pressure varies during the course of a day, a single measurement may not be indicative of the average CSF pressure over 24 hours: prolonged lumbar or intraventricular pressure monitoring may be required in cases of diagnostic uncertainty. (ichd-3.org)
  • The study suggests variation in CSF formation rate, variation in venous pressure or a pressure dependent Cout as possible causes for the deviation from the CSF absorption model seen in some patients. (diva-portal.org)
  • The effect of cerebrospinal fluid pressure on dural venous pressure in young rats. (biomedsearch.com)
  • In order to study cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) absorption across the dural sinus wall, the effect of CSF pressure (recorded from the cisterna magna) on dural venous pressure (recorded from the transverse sinus) was investigated in groups of rats at 2, 10, 20, and 31 days after birth and in adulthood. (biomedsearch.com)
  • At normal resting pressures there was no positive pressure gradient between the CSF and sinus venous blood in 2-, 10-, and 20-day-old rats, but in 31-day-old and adult rats there was a positive gradient of 16 and 12 mm H2O, respectively. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The effect on dural venous pressure was age-related, with the largest increase at 2 days, the smallest at 20 days, and no effect at 31 days or in adults. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Effect of venous stenting on intracranial pressure in idiopathic intracranial hypertension. (ucl.ac.uk)
  • Similar findings were recently reported by Muzzi and colleagues, who found that desflurane, but not isoflurane, increased intracranial pressure in hypocapnic patients with supratentorial mass lesions having neurosurgery. (asahq.org)
  • We present 7 cases of IIH with normal CSF Opening pressures, out of 30 consecutive patients of suspected IIH admitted to the neurosurgery ward of a tertiary care hospital over a period of 2 years, kindling interest in nomenclature and diagnostic dilemma if strict criteria are adhered to. (innovativepublication.com)
  • Different infusion protocols can be used to estimate the outflow conductance (Cout) or its reciprocal the outflow resistance, (Rout) with or without using the baseline resting pressure, Pr. (diva-portal.org)
  • A non-linear differential equation is used to mathematically describe the CSF system, where two important parameters are the outflow conductance ( C out ) and the Pressure Volume Index (PVI). (diva-portal.org)
  • Given the interaction of various pressures, their role in glaucoma pathophysiology has come under investigation and warrants further study in order to better understand the aetiology and progression of glaucoma. (elsevier.com)
  • Cerebrospinal fluid pressure and glaucomatous optic disc cupping. (nih.gov)
  • These could include anemia, anxiety, high blood pressure or a neurological problem. (answers.com)
  • Sphenoid stress can travel to the hypothalamus causing disturbances in the way the hypothalamus receives, uses or sends nerve or fluid (neurological or vascular) information. (massagemag.com)
  • To examine the influence of short-term reduction in cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP) as compared with short-term elevation in IOP on axonal transport. (arvojournals.org)
  • When anesthesia was not used, but when the animals were resting quietly, a significant pressor response occurred within the physiological range of CSF pressure. (ahajournals.org)
  • The predictions not yet verified: (1) turning points B-low and B-high that represent physiological borders, (2) pathophysiological self-sustaining phases of low and high CSF pressure with corresponding minimal or maximal CSF volume (maximal dural sac collapse or distension) and no CSF transport, (3) compensated and de-compensated conditions. (scix.net)
  • Thus, our results indicate the existence of new physiological/pathophysiological correlations between intracranial fluids, which opens up the possibility of new therapeutic approaches to intracranial hypertension. (inclinedbedtherapy.com)
  • Atypical cases of IIH have been reported periodically, and an important subset of these patients have normal CSF Opening pressure (OP) on lumbar puncture (LP). Application of strict criteria for diagnosing such patients needs reconsideration. (innovativepublication.com)
  • The purpose of this study is to collect and store cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)from patients with normal CSF. (mayo.edu)
  • The pulse rate tended to increase slightly, or remain the same, providing CSF pressure was not increased too greatly or too rapidly. (ahajournals.org)
  • In the case when a stenosis was present, but no syrinx had formed, the longitudinal pressure gradient and pulse pressures were highest on the SC. (asme.org)
  • The pulse can be felt because the blood is under great pressure from the force of the heart contraction pushing the blood against the walls of the artery and stretching them a little. (answers.com)
