Method of Miranda-Aguilar and Reymundo-Ponce for Correcting the CSF Pressure in Patients with an Elevated Protein Concentration

Specialty:

Neurology, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology & Otolaryngology

Objective:

ICD-10:

Description:

The pressure measured by CSF manometry may be falsely elevated if the protein concentration is elevated. Miranda-Aguilar and Reymundo-Ponce determined a simple method to correct the observed pressure reading for the change in density caused by the increased protein concentration.
