Long-Term Measuring of Ventricular CSF Pressure With Tumors of the Posterior Fossa
Among the patient material of the authors (2, 6, 7, 9), who have special clinical experience in methods and indication of measuring intracranial pressure, patients with space-occupying infratentorial processes form a relatively small group. This is quite surprising, as acute increase of CSF pressure after operation within the posterior fossa has been known for a long time and has been treated — according to CUSHING — by single or repeated drainage of CSF by puncturing the lateral ventricle.
