The research group focuses on clinical and translational neurosurgical research within the fields of neurovascular disease and cerebrospinal fluid disorders.
- Cerebrovascular disorders. Cerebral hemodynamics including cerebral revascularization. Focus on intracranial aneurysms and subarachnoid hemorrhage, including neurointensive monitoring and outcome.
- Brain Monitoring. Several projects study intracranial pathophysiology with a strong focus on intracranial pressure and arterial blood pressure dynamics, including studies on cerebral autoregulation.
- Hydrocephalus. Studies focus on the pathophysiology of hydrocephalus and alterations in pressure dynamics in hydrocephalus and other brain water disorders. Translational research has been initiated to study molecular-genetic mechanisms of hydrocephalus and diseases involving disorders in brain water homeostasis. Clinical studies focus on outcome of treatment of hydrocephalus.
