Intracranial Pressure Elevation Alters CSF Clearance

Video Poster

2019 CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium

OSLO, NORWAY - JULY 1-2, 2019

Vegard Vinje, researcher and PhD student, talks about his work developing mathematical models to better understand how cerebrospinal fluid behaves in patients with normal and elevated intracranial pressure.

According to the models, Mr. Vinje and his colleagues found that intracranial pressure actually changes the relative flow of cerebrospinal fluid, with arachnoid granulations having a major impact on outflow. This has significant implications for disorders related to CSF flow, including syringomyelia, hydrocephalus and more.

This presentation was made possible thanks to a generous grant from The Monkton Institute and was presented at the 2019 CSF Hydrodynamics Symposium held in Oslo, Norway.
