Summary

Monitoring of VFP and local brain interstitial fluid pressure was performed in 169 patients after removal of hemispheric gliomas, basal and subtentorial tumours. On the basis of CT-data 97% of the patients had postoperative oedema of various severity and spreading. The location of the tumour determined both the degree and severity of oedema as well as VFP and ISFP.

Different mechanisms of oedema formation may be involved depending on localization of the tumour. Thus, we can propose a hypothesis of the mechanisms of oedema development in neurosurgical pathology.
