Abstract

The authors present their experience with continuous intracranial pressure(ICP) measurements in 6 adult patients suffering from hydrocephalus. The patients showed atypical symptoms and signs and/or were in complicated situations to decide CSF shunt surgery. The role of ICP measurements in a decision of shunt surgery has been found in those cases. The ICP pattern of plateau waves in conjunction with B-waves could be regarded as an indication of shunt therapy in the light of clinical results.
