Abstract

The intraventricular pressure was continuously recorded in 29 patients (23 infants with hydrocephalus and 6 with brain tumor). In 2 of the 20 cases in which A waves occurred, typical pleateau waves were observed, whilst in 18 cases the hypertensive periods produced an undulating picture. In the development of these A waves, whose characteristics are extensively described, the spontaneous decompression resulting from the large fontanelles or sutures, or the decompression apertures resulting from operative intervention in the tumor cases, and the high degree of hydrocephalus play a part.
