Control of Active CSF Shunts: Is Pulse Pressure Amplitude a Suitable Control?
4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium
GEORGIA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY - ATLANTA, GA - JUNE 19-20, 2017
Dr. Marianne Schmid Daners (ETH Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland) discusses whether or not pulse pressure amplitude is a better or worse variable by which to measure effectiveness of shunts. This presentation was given at the 4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. (2017)
This presentation was given at the 4th International CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium, which was held in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. This biennial conference brings together scientists, engineers, clinicians and mathematicians from around the world to discuss the underlying mechanisms that cause disorders of CSF flow, like syringomyelia
and Chiari malformation
Participants discuss their own research and bounce ideas off one another to better comprehend these poorly understood mechanisms. Thanks to Dr. John Oshinski
and Dr. M. Keith Sharp
for organizing this year's scientific program.
CSF is proud to once again support this incredible meeting of the minds. This support is made possible by a generous grant from the Monkton Institute, Inc.
