Abstract

The papers presented in this session confirm the general concept of the volume/pressure relationship developed by several investigators in recent years, namely that during expansion of an intracranial mass lesion, developing edema, or CSF infusion, at first ICP rises very slowly because of displacement of some of the normal intracranial volume, then begins to rise precipitously toward the blood pressure with continued expansion of the mass. A new contribution was the demonstration that, in some circumstances at least, this is a logarithmic function: the V-LogP curve approximates a straight line.
