Brain edema is defined as an increase in brain volume resulting from abnormal accumulation
of fluid within the brain parenchyma. Brain edema is a potentially life-threatening
complication of neurocritical illness as it raises the intracranial pressure and may progress
Early diagnosis and management of cerebral edema in acute liver failure is important to
reduce neurological complication and mortality. Ammonia-induced astrocyte swelling
and increased blood brain barrier permeability via transmembrane dysfunction are major
mechanisms of cere...
Preventing secondary brain injury after neurological insults is one of the primary goals of
the neurocritical care unit. Our understanding of the roles of intracranial pressure (ICP) and
cerebral edema in managing patients in the neurocritical care units is still evolving. Rec...
Patients with brain injury of any etiology are at risk for developing increased intracranial pressure. Acute intracranial hypertension is a medical emergency requiring immediate intervention to prevent permanent damage to the brain. Intracranial pressure as an absolute value is ...
