BACKGROUND: Pediatric head trauma is the most common presentation to emergency departments. Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) may lead to secondary brain damage in head trauma and early diagnosis of increased ICP is very important. Measurement of optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) is a method that can be used for determining increased ICP. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) and Rotterdam computer tomography scores (RCTS) in pediatric patients for severe head trauma.
