Long-term telemetric intracerebral pressure monitoring as a tool in intracranial hypotension

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Intracranial hypotension (IH) remains a difficult neurosurgical diagnosis. Relying solely on the symptomatology may be misleading for both diagnosis and assessment of treatment effect as symptoms may resemble other conditions not related to IH. As such, paraclinical supplements in both diagnosis and treatment follow-up are warranted. We present a 42-year-old male with IH treated with computed tomography-guided epidural blood patch. The diagnosis and treatment assessment included continual intracerebral pressure (ICP) monitoring. We found ICP monitoring helpful in IH diagnosis and long-term assessment of treatment and propose this modality as a supplement in difficult IH cases.
