ICP-based decision-making in pediatric neurosurgery


Decision-making in pediatric neurosurgery routinely involves assessing intracranial pressure (ICP). The level of injury and severity of disease play an important role in determining which method of ICP measurement is preferred. Invasive and non-invasive techniques have described indications, advantages and shortcomings. This collection of papers from some of the world’s leading thinkers in this field is a refreshing perspective on some mundane techniques and a few innovative and promising advances.
