There were 21 patients who experienced END that received the following single or combined treatments: partial decompressive craniectomy
(8 patients), hematoma evacuation (6 patients), lateral ventricle puncture and drainage (5 patients), and surface hypothermia (13 patients).
Emergent decompressive craniectomy
with evacuation of the hematoma was performed.
Surgical options in ICH including decompressive craniectomy
Flint and associates11 have investigated the expansion rates of intra-cerebral contusion after decompressive craniectomy
and showed that re-expansion occurred in 58% of patients and it was associated with higher mortality and prolonged morbidity.
Patients with cerebrospinal fluid leakage and/or external decompressive craniectomy
were excluded from the study because their intracranial compliance was influenced and the PRx calculation was unreliable.
for the treatment of refractoryhigh intracranial pressure in traumatic brain injury (Review).
Sequential design, multicenter, randomized, controlled trial of early decompressive craniectomy
in malignant middle cerebral artery infarction.
Of relevance, he had a left lenticulo-capsular hematoma and underwent decompressive craniectomy
two years before the onset of psychiatric symptoms.
Cranioplasty was timed in all these patients using native bone flap preserved in the abdominal wall after decompressive craniectomy
for the treatment of refractory high intracraneal pressure in traumatic brain injury.
Objective: To evaluate the outcomes of decompressive craniectomy
(DC) in adults with severe traumatic brain injury (STBI).
Neurosurgical Interventions: Decompressive craniectomy
is a commonly practiced therapeutic approach for patients with severe TBI who are at risk of developing severe cerebral edema.
