Abstract

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.
