Brain Elastic Behavior and CSF Dynamics During Progressive Epidural Balloon Expansion
The progressive expansion of an extradural balloon causes nearly simultaneous changes in CSF dynamics, cerebral hemodynamics and brain tissue mechanical response properties, and in a complex manner (cf. Miller et al. 1973). These phenomena are difficult to predict from changes in CSF dynamics or cerebral hemodynamics until the level of mass expansion is well underway.
