Effects of External Ventricular Drainage on Serum Sodium Levels in Adult Neurosurgical Patients
Objective: Hyponatremia is a common electrolyte abnormality observed in neurosurgical practice. The purpose of this article is to report the preliminary findings on the relationship between hyponatremia and continuous external ventricular drainage in adult neurosurgical patients. Methods: We retrospectively studied the mean serum sodium (Na + ) levels of 67 patients (29 females, 38 males) who were operated for intracranial pathologies and underwent external ventricular drainage insertion todoi:10.14235/bs.2018.1252 fatcat:fzackqdylnfunbwhw3fsr4lge4
