Management of intracranial hypertension secondary to traumatic brain injury is crucial to optimizing outcomes. Use of pharmacological and/or surgical management is often needed to prevent secondary brain injury and its immediate and long-term effects. In addition to discussing medical and surgical options for approaching intracranial hypertension, this chapter will review its pathophysiology and discuss key aspects of intracranial pressure monitoring.
