Abstract: Anterior fontanel tension (AFT) has been shown to reflect the intracranial pressure (ICP). A new transducer was designed for AFT measurement which overcomes the problems of replacement in subsequent use. Using the transducer AFT was monitored noninvasively over extended periods in about 200 normal and sick neonates. The results indicate that the technique can be used to identify elevated pressure due to different disease conditions and it has a potential to help in understanding physiological and pathological mechanisms causing alterations in the normal cerebrospinal dynamics. Further studies are underway to establish the full potentials of the technique.
