SPAHO, Natalia et al. Guias de práctica clínica para el manejo del drenaje ventricular externo. Rev. argent. neurocir. [online]. 2006, vol.20, n.3, pp. 143-146. ISSN 1850-1532.

The high incidence of infections of the external ventricular drainages (0-45%) represents a serious problem for patients and institutions not only in the medical aspects, but also in the economic and legal ones. We believe that the systematic and multidisciplinary application of guides is of great value for the prevention of infections. Based on the controversial points, a group comprised by neurosurgeons, intensive care physicians, intensive care nurses, infectologists and the hospital infections committee, discussed these issue and wrote the recommendations.
