11 Basal cistern
or even lateral fissure enhancement, hydrocephalus and basal ganglia lacunar lesions displayed by MRI are considered as three characteristics of tubercular meningitis.
Conclusion: ICP measurement values and the presence of compression of basal cistern
on the initial brain CT can be used to predict the prognosis in severe head injury but there is no significant relationship between hypophyseal hormone values and prognosis.
Compressed basal cistern
, displaced 4th ventricle and hydrocephalus were present in 1(2.
They cover endoscopic intraventricular and basal cistern
anatomy, clinical indications, neuroendoscopic procedures, and endoscope-assisted microneurosurgical procedures.
Brain CT showed brain edema with diffuse subarachnoid hemorrhage located at the basal cistern
and intraventricular area.
Cranial CT revealed SAH in basal cistern
and bilateral Sylvian fissures.
Otherwise, it provides route to drain cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from basal cisterns
before Sylvian fissure splitting.
13], had observed that ICP monitoring was tried in this study, but they observed that it was unable to predict the late onset sudden rise in pressure instead of ICP monitoring obliteration of basal cisterns
pears to be more reliable indicator for severity of injury we agree with the observation of above study
Emergent CT showed increased swelling and obliteration of the basal cisterns
consistent with the patient's clinical symptoms of becoming more lethargic.
CT scan brain was done which showed oedema in bilateral cerebral convexities and posterior fossa with effacement of basal cisterns
and compression of the fourth ventricle.
2) In children < 18 months, the presence of a diffuse copper-beaten pattern on skull radiography, together with narrowing of the basal cisterns
and obliteration of the anterior sulci, increases the likelihood of raised intracranial pressure.
CSF may flow to cortical cisterns and sagittal sinus directly with bypassing blocked basal cisterns
