Abstract

Cerebral edema remains the most common immediate cause of death in patients with fulminant hepatic failure. We have used ultrafiltration as a method of controlling intracranial pressure (ICP) when other measures have failed. Two cases in which an initial decrease in ICP was followed by a marked rebound increase resulting in death are reported.
