Consequences of Cerebral Edema and Increased Intracranial Pressure

  • J. W. F. Beks
Part of the Advances in Neurosurgery book series (NEURO, volume 1)


Already in 1881, two German scientists, NAUNYN and SCHREIBER, reported that as result of increasing intracranial pressure, changes of vegetative functions may occur.
