Title: ISPN - Clash of the Titans - Intracranial Pressure Monitoring is Very Useful in Pediatric Head Injuries

Date: Friday, August 7th, 2020

Time: 01:00 PM GMT

Intracranial pressure monitoring (ICP) is a clinical tool recommended for the management of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), hydrocephalus, and hemorrhages. This procedure is based on the Monro–Kellie doctrine, which defined the cranial cavity as a closed rigid box with a dynamic pressure-volume equilibrium. Nowadays several systems for monitoring the PIC are available, but what is their meaning in pediatric neurosurgery? Anthony Figaji and Artur da Cunha, world-leading experts on the field, will deliver a webinar on this topic as a part of the “Clash of the Titans webinar series” hosted by ISPN. The registration for the event is available! Click the link below!
