A mechano-hydraulic model of intracranial pressure dynamics

Abstract

The brain is a multi-phase mixture of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), vasculature, and brain cells. The intracranial pressure (ICP) of the CSF can be monitored to assess patients suffering from serious neurological disorders, such as hydrocephalus and traumatic brain injury. However, the only reliable way to measure ICP is to drill a hole through the skull to insert a pressure sensor inside the brain. Therefore, it is necessary to create accurate mathematical models that couple the temporal dynamics of ICP with clinically-observable physiological parameters that can be measured non-invasively. In this paper, we present a new mechano-hydraulic mathematical model that allows one to study the dynamics arising from the coupling between the mechanics of brain, CSF circulation, and cerebral blood flow. We will study the dynamics of the model and examine domains of stability.
