Intracranial Hypotension: A Feline Model and Effects on Cerebral Blood Flow
Intracranial hypotension is a frequently noted phenomenon in the clinical neurosurgical setting [1, 3, 4, 5, 9]. A typical picture of severe headaches, nausea, general malaise, and occasionally, decreased consciousness are the well-known nonspecific hallmarks of this syndrome . A variety of situations such as traumatic cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, lumbar puncture or continuous CSF drainage, craniotomy, intra- and extracranial drainage systems, overdrained hydrocephalus, and spontaneous intracranial hypotension have been described as causative [3, 4, 5, 9].
