Background: Pressure reactivity index (PRx) has emerged as a means to continuously monitor cerebrovascular reactivity in traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, other intracranial pressure (ICP)-based continuous metrics exist, and may have advantages over PRx. The goal of this study was to perform a scoping overview of the literature on non-PRx ICP-based continuous cerebrovascular reactivity metrics in adult TBI. Methods: We searched MEDLINE, BIOSIS, EMBASE, Global Health, SCOPUS, and Cochrane Library from inception to December 2019. Using a two-stage filtering of title/abstract, and then full manuscript, we identified pertinent articles. Data was abstracted to tables and each technique summarized, including pulse amplitude index (PAx), correlation between pulse amplitude of ICP and cerebral perfusion pressure (RAC), PRx55-15, and low-resolution metrics LAx and L-PRx. Results: A total of 23 articles met the inclusion criteria, with the vast majority being retrospective in nature and based out of European centers. Sixteen articles focused on high-resolution metrics PAx, RAC, and PRx55-15, with 6 articles focusing on LAx and L-PRx. PAx may have a role in low ICP situations, where it appears to perform superior to PRx. RAC displays similar behavior to PRx, with a trend to stronger associations with favorable/unfavorable outcome at 6 months, and stronger parabolic relationship with CPP. PRx55-15 provides a focused assessment on the vasogenic frequency range associated with cerebral autoregulation, with preliminary data supporting a strong association with outcome in TBI. LAx and L-PRx display varying associations with 6-month outcome in TBI, depending on the window length of calculation, with shorter windows demonstrating stronger correlations with classical PRx. Conclusions: Non-PRx continuous ICP-based cerebrovascular reactivity metrics can be split into high-resolution and low-resolution measures. High-resolution indices include PAx, RAC, and PRx55-15, while low-resolution indices include L-PRx and LAx. The true role for these metrics beyond classic PRx remains unclear. Each displays situations where it may prove superior over PRx, given limitations with this currently widely accepted measure. Much future investigation into each of these alternative metrics is required prior to adoption into the clinical monitoring armamentarium in adult TBI. © 2020, Springer-Verlag GmbH Austria, part of Springer Nature.
