    Optical Coherence Tomography and Visual Evoked Potential Testing for Noninvasive Intracranial Pressure Monitoring in Craniosynostosis

    Elevated intracranial pressure is sometimes observed in the setting of craniosynostosis. Common clinical symptoms include headaches, nausea, vomiting, developmental delays, and visual disturbances. 1 Some of these symptoms may be mild and unspecific in the pediatric population. In other cases, pediatric patients can present late for evaluation by the craniofacial surgeon with more concerning signs of intracranial hypertension. 2 Fundoscopic examination is commonly utilized for noninvasive evaluation of elevated intracranial pressure; however, this method has poor sensitivity in children. 3 Therefore, patients may require more sensitive and specific methods of intracranial pressure monitoring for appropriate timing and planning of operative ...
