Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the relation between intracranial pressure (ICP), regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), and brain metabolism in patients with acute severe brain injuries in order to evaluate how much the intracranial pressure could be increased if brain ischemia was to be avoided.
