Original Title: Monitoreo no invasivo de complacencia intracraneal y presión intracraneal en lesiones del sistema nervioso central
Authors' recommendations: "Very low-quality evidence obtained from observational studies enrolling few patients does not allow to draw conclusions on the effectiveness of measuring the intracranial complacency and intracranial pressure with waveform-based non-invasive monitoring (Brain4Care®) for the management of central nervous system lesions. No evidence assessing the clinically relevant benefits associated to the use of this test, such as survival, quality of life, complications of the underlying diseases and length of hospital stay, have been found. The diagnostic performance of the non-invasive test was fair when compared with the invasive test. The clinical practice guidelines consulted do not mention this technology. Health funders from Brazil, other Latin American countries and high-income countries do not mention the use of Brain4Care® for intracranial compliance and intracranial pressure measurement. In Argentina, the use of Brain4Care® is not included in the Mandatory Medical Program and cannot be reimbursed by the Unique Reimbursement System. No economic evaluations about this technology have been found".
