about

Monitoring of Cerebral and Spinal Haemodynamics During Neurosurgeryis a comprehensive description of subdural monitoring of intracranial pressure (ICP) during neurosurgery. It offers thorough analysis of a comprehensive database consisting of measurements of ICP, cerebral perfusion pressure and other relevant physiological data from more than 1,800 patients subjected to intracranial surgery at Aarhus University Hospital. Features of anaesthesia, both inhalation and total intravenous, are discussed, and measures to reduce ICP are described. A majority of the patients had supratentorial tumours, but the database also includes patients with infratentorial tumours and patients with no intracranial space-occupying lesions. A chapter is reserved for discussion of the special features of children with cerebral tumours.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The present book on monitoring of cerebral and spinal haemodynamics is focussed on the huge database of more than 1,800 patients of a single institution . . It describes the subdural measuring of intracranial pressure during neurosurgical surgery. . The book contains an updated bibliography with the most relevant literature . . this is a book with a lot of new information on the pathophysiology of ICP that might be of interest for colleagues who are interested in a specialisation in neuroanaesthesiology." (Ulrich Sure and Beate Schoch, Neurosurgical Review, Vol. 32, 2009)
