Previous literature on acute obstructive hydrocephalus has suggested that CSF with its fibrinolytic activity increases intraventricular pressure and causes a hyperdynamic CSF flow, as well as proximal aqueduct dilatation, which can break down the clot and resolve hydrocephalus (3).
The possibility of indicating an increase in intraventricular pressure through this method involved, in parallel, the demonstration of its important prognostic value in two recent studies with terminal CKD patients.
Compared to the sham I/R group, I/R injury caused a significant decrease in left ventricular developed pressure (LVDP), maximum rise/down velocity of left intraventricular pressure ([+ or -]dp/dtmax), and coronary flow (CF).
Overdrainage reduces the CSF volume and intraventricular pressure. This can lead to dural separation from the brain and stretching of the bridging vein, which increases the risk of rupture.
