The study is a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, open label observational study. The objective of this study is to compare the accuracy of the EyeBOX to a clinical diagnosis of abnormal ICP as determined by an external ventriculostomy drain (EVD) or ventriculostomy catheter.
Osmotherapy consists in the therapeutic use of osmotically active substances with the aim of reducing the volume and therefore the intracranial pressure. It therefore represents an essential component in the clinical management of cerebral edema and intracranial hypertension, whether they are a consequence of head trauma, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, and neoplasm or neurosurgical procedures. The current study aims at evaluating in vivo the effects on haemostasis parameters of hypertonic saline solutions at different concentration, as compared to mannitol, in patients with neuroradiological signs (CT / MRI) of cerebral edema / non-traumatic intracranial hypertension.
This is a prospective, randomized, single-center clinical study aiming to explore the safety and efficacy of venous stenting for patients with internal jugular vein stenosis (IJVS).
Observational study to investigate the natural course of intracranial pressure (ICP) after decompressive craniectomy (DC) using long-term telemetric ICP monitoring. Patients will have continuous ICP measurement performed during the admission to the neuro-intensive care unit (NICU) and after discharge weekly measurements sessions will be performed before and after cranioplasty.
The aim of this study is to determine if lowering blood pressure using FDA approved medication (antihypertensive drugs) alters brain pulsatility and reduces brain amyloid beta protein accumulation in older adults. Amyloid beta protein is high in the brain of older adults with Alzheimer's disease. Hypertension may increase brain amyloid beta protein accumulation and affect memory and thinking ability in older adults. However, whether lowering blood pressure reduces brain amyloid beta protein and improves brain function is inconclusive. The investigators hypothesize that treating high blood pressure alters brain pulsatility, which in turn reduces brain amyloid beta protein accumulation and improves brain structure and function.
Severe Trauma Brain Injury (TBIs) is a public health problem and monitoring of Intracranial Pressure (ICP) is a determinant key of it prognosis. Within the noninvasive methods to estimate the ICP, the measurement of intraocular pressure has been proposed because of its biological plausibility (proximity of the eye to the encephalic contend). Objective. Correlate intraocular pressure with ICP in children with TBIs and obtain their utility values.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the vision and posterior segment of eyes in children and young adults less than 22 years of age with risk, suspicion, or past medical history significant for elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). Patients will have visual acuity and color vision tested. Assessment of the posterior segment will involve using a non-invasive (non-contact) imaging technique (i.e. a portable fundus camera in clinic and hospital settings).
This is a single-center, retrospective, open-label study. This study is planned to investigate the accuracy of mRS and NIHSS, comparing with the accuracy of CSF pressure and papilledema grade in assessing cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.
Primary objective of this study is to assess the accuracy and precision of intracranial pressure (ICP) measurement in patients after traumatic brain injury and subarachnoid hemorrhage when using simultaneous, non-invasive measurement compared to standard, invasive, measurement. Secondary objective: is to assess the correlation of intracranial pressure (ICP) measurement in patients after traumatic brain injury and subarachnoid hemorrhage between simultaneous, non-invasive measurement and standard, invasive,measurement
This is a single centre, observational study with a medical device which has Conformité Européenne (CE) marking. The aim of the study is to demonstrate that patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarction (M-MCA) show an increased intra-cranial pressure (ICP) compared to neurological patients without M-MCA infarction or other space-occupying indications.
