Abstract

The cerebral vascular bed is one of the intracranial comPartments which undergoes rapid change. However, it remains unresolved how it responds to decompression. Some decompressive treatment resulting in an increased vascular bed may adversely affect the vascular system by encouraging engorgement of the vascular bed if vasoparalysis is a major etiological factor in increased intracranial pressure, as reported by Langfitt et al. (1966). The present study was carried out to investigate the response of intracranial blood volume (ICBV) during decompression.
