On the basis of recent investigations (1,2) the subject of intracranial pressure-volume relationships has become clarified. However, despite the few but promising clinical reports gathered to validate the theory that had been established in animal studies, many important areas need to be explored by human investigations. The aim of this study was to adapt and test the model proposed in patients presenting with presumably decreased intracranial compliance.
