Propofol and Intracranial Pressure
Increase in intracranial pressure (ICP) is one of the most common complications in patients with intracranial pathology. In neuroanesthesia the necessity of avoiding drugs which have the potential to increase ICP is well known. This study was designed to evaluate the effects of Propofol (P) on ICP in patients, in comparison with Thiopentone (TPS), in order to assess the suitability of this new intravenous anesthetic agent in neuroanesthesia.
