Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0139819A2] This generally relates to methods and apparatus for accomplishing the closed recirculation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), typically synthetic in nature, through the cerebral and spinal regions of the body and the replenishment and revitalization equipment. A preferred cassette variation includes a modular disposable package of equipment preferably packaged in such a way that it is readily and quickly employed in an emergency. The cassette preferably contains all or most of the components forming the fluid path which accomplishes the conditioning of the recirculated therapeutic CSF from and to the patient.
