After A Century: Henri Duret and Intracranial Pressure

  • Conference paper

Abstract

At the beginning of his celebrated Mütter lecture of 1901, on the effects of cerebral compression, Harvey Cushing did not fail to cite all those who, before himself, had made any valuable contribution to the subject. After Von Haller and Astley Cooper up to Kocher, the apparently exhaustive list was composed of not less than 17 names. Nevertheless, for some incomprehensible reason, one can search in vain for the name of Henri Duret to whom we owe, as it was clearly indicated by Lundberg, a remarkable analysis of the consequences of intra-cranial hypertension.
