Post op CT craniotomy

Amir R Dehdashti
Ruptured aneurysms with intraparenchymal hematoma and mass effect are primarily treated by surgical clipping. In this video presentation, a 68 year old male with a large ruptured right ICA bifurcation aneurysm is presented. Patient's neurological exam was rapidly deteriorating, therefore the patient was transferred to the operating theater after initial evaluation by CT and CT angiogram. A pterional craniotomy was performed, the frontal hematoma was partially removed and the aneurysm was clipped. Residual hematoma was removed after securing the aneurysm and the aneurysm dome was punctured(detail of surgical clipping in the video)...

We present a new strategy to constrain nonrigid registrations of multi-modal images using a low-dimensional statistical deformation model and test this in registering pre-operative and post-operative images from epilepsy patients. For those patients who may undergo surgical resection for treatment, the current gold-standard to identify regions of seizure involves craniotomy and implantation of intracranial electrodes. To guide surgical resection, surgeons utilize pre-op anatomical and functional MR images in conjunction with post-electrode implantation MR and CT images...

PURPOSE: This study examined clinical and aneurysm characteristics in patients with unruptured aneurysms, treated with either coiling or clipping at a single institution, with the primary outcome-Glasgow Outcome Score (GOS)-measured at 6 months after treatment. METHODS: Data was obtained by a retrospective review of a prospective registry of consecutive cases of unruptured intracranial aneurysms treated at a single institution from 2002 to mid 2007. Demographic data, number, location, and size of aneurysms, calcification, mode of treatment, ASA score, presence of a stroke on post-op imaging, and GOS were recorded...
