Age categories of intracranial pressure
Increased intracranial pressure can occur in newborns, school-aged children, and adults. In each age category, intracranial pressure has its own symptoms. Doctors, who have technologies for diagnosing intracranial pressure research, know this.
How is it diagnosed?
CT, MRI are among the most common methods of instrumental diagnostics.
However, it can be measured and observed in dynamics only thanks to Angiomarker technology and visualized using vascular screening.
What is intracranial pressure and why is it dangerous?
Intracranial pressure is a conflict between the volume of brain tissue, the volume of blood vessels filled with blood, and the volume of cerebrospinal fluid, which creates a hydrodynamic pressure that can be higher than the pressure in the brain substance and the pressure in the blood vessels. It is this hydrohemodynamic conflict, closed within the cranium, which is rigid to increase or decrease and becomes the cause of hydrohemodynamic conflict. Fluid accumulates in the brain substance, arteries and veins are compressed, and the brain goes into a state of chronic or acute edema with all the following clinical pictures.
Undiagnosed intracranial pressure leads to psycho-neurological deficiency with further delay in psycho-speech development, motor development, and the threat of progression of psycho-neurological deficiency into cerebral palsy. Children with autism also have signs of intracranial hypertension.
What happens with increased intracranial pressure?
Intracranial pressure increases, squeezes cerebral vessels, and leads to ischemia of the brain without occlusion of the vessels. The arterio-venous balance is disturbed, which in turn disrupts the hydrodynamic intracranial balance.
The doctor must diagnose both the conflict between the arteries and veins of the brain, and the conflict between the intracranial pressure of the brain and the pressure inside the brain vessels.
In our practice, we use modern technologies for diagnosing and treatment of intracranial pressure, in-depth analysis of the patient’s condition as a whole, and assessing both the main problem and accompanying pathologies.
