The company added that Bioplate's titanium fixation screws can be used in conjunction with the IFS tabs, or the entire fixation system can be used by surgeons for routine craniectomies
and facial reconstructions.
Posterior fossa craniotomies and craniectomies
are commonly used by neurosurgeons to approach infratentorial lesions.
For patients with decompressive craniectomies
, only 10% of physiotherapists (n=5/52) reported that they would commence mobility without a helmet.
These often result from trauma in the form of skull fractures leading to bone loss or decompressive craniectomies
to control raised intracranial pressure.
Clinical significance of positive cranial bone flap cultures and associated risk of surgical site infection after craniotomies or craniectomies
. J Neurosurg.
Epilepsy in patients with malignant middle cerebral artery infarcts and decompressive craniectomies
. Epilepsy Res 2015;112:130-136.
In some of the cases for urgent decompressive craniectomies
, the patients did not have a GCS taken in the ED because of the severity of their injury; therefore, obtaining blood alcohol screening in the ED may not have been feasible.
The management included more neurosurgical interventions as craniotomies and decompressive craniectomies
for refractory intracranial hypertension cases.
Some authors suggest that large craniectomies
convert the cranium from a closed box to an open cavity which alters the brain pathophysiology.
To verify the robustness of these methods, data on small craniectomies
, including posterior fossa and nondecompressive craniectomies
, were also collected.
In other words, since craniectomy prevents malignant ICP increase, ONSD normal values in the two craniectomies
are actually the proof of concept that OSND measurement is strongly related to ICP.
