Since 1994 we have performed perioperative measurement of subdural ICP combined with arterial and jugular blood pressure and gas analysis in primarily elective patients subjected to craniotomy. ICP was measured with a 22G needle connected to a pressure transducer via a polyethylene catheter. Until now (2006), 1,833 patients have been included in our database. In this chapter the extensive material of the database is disclosed. Patients were entered consecutively over the years, some included as part of controlled trials and some as part of the normal daily routine. The demographics of the patient population are described, likewise the diagnosis, including tumour (if any) localization. The anaesthetics used and ICP-reducing procedures are summarized and the method for ICP monitoring discussed.
