Purpose: Coagulation disorder and intraoperative hypotension are representative complications of traumatic brain injury which cause worse perioperative outcome. The aim of this study was to survey the relation of coagulation disorder and intraoperative hypotension (IH) during decompressive craniectomy. Method: Patients who underwent emergency decompressive craniectomy due to traumatic brain injury were retrospectively surveyed. The relation between preoperative coagulation date and intraoperative hypotension (systolic blood pressure < 60 mmHg after dural opening) was analyzed...

Background: Acinetobacter baumannii nosocomial ventriculitis/meningitis, especially those due to drug-resistant strains, has substantially increased over recent years. However, limited therapeutic options exist for the Acinetobacter baumannii ventriculitis/meningitis because of the poor penetration rate of most antibiotics through the blood-brain barrier. Case presentation: A 57-year-old male patient developed ventriculitis from an extensively drug-resistant strain of Acinetobacter baumannii after the decompressive craniectomy for severe traumatic brain injury...

A decompressive craniectomy (DC) has been shown to be a life-saving therapeutic treatment for traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients, which also might result in post-operative behavioral dysfunction. However, there is still no definite conclusion about whether the behavioral dysfunction already existed at an early stage after the DC operation or is just a long-term post-operation complication. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to analyze whether DC treatment was beneficial to behavioral function at an early stage post TBI...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infections (SSIs) are noteworthy and costly complications. New recommendations from a national organization have urged the elimination of traditional surgeon's caps (surgical skull caps) and mandated the use of bouffant caps to prevent SSIs. OBJECTIVE: To report SSI rates for >15 000 class I (clean) surgical procedures 13 mo before and 13 mo after surgical skull caps were banned at a single site with 25 operating rooms. METHODS: SSI data were acquired from hospital infection control monthly summary reports from January 2014 to March 2016...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: MAGL (monoacylglycerol lipase) is an enzyme that hydrolyzes the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol and regulates the production of arachidonic acid and prostaglandins-substances that mediate tissue inflammatory response. Here, we have studied the effects of the selective MAGL inhibitors JZL184 and MJN110 and their underlying molecular mechanisms on 3 different experimental models of focal cerebral ischemia. METHODS: SHR (spontaneously hypertensive rats) and normotensive WKY (Wistar Kyoto) rats were subject to an intracortical injection of the potent vasoconstrictor endothelin-1, permanent occlusion of a distal segment of the middle cerebral artery via craniectomy, or transient occlusion of the middle cerebral artery by the intraluminal suture method...

Craniotomy surgical site infections are an inherent risk and dreaded complication for the elective brain tumor patient. Sequelae can include delays in resumption in adjuvant treatments for multiple surgeries if staged cranioplasty is pursued. Here, the authors review their experience in operative debridement of surgical site infections with single-stage reimplantation of the salvaged craniotomy bone flap. A prospectively maintained database of a single surgeon's neuro-oncology patients from 2009 to 2017 (JRF) was queried to identify 11 patients with surgical site infection after craniotomy for tumor resection...

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is devastating disease with high mortality and morbidity rates. Most ICH is evacuated by either craniotomy (CR) or decompressive craniectomy (DC) although optimal treatment has not been established yet. The objective of this study was to compare clinical outcomes of spontaneous ICH patients between CR and DC groups and determine clinical factors affecting clinical prognosis. We retrospectively analyzed our single-center experience with large supratentorial ICH. From January 2011 to December 2016, 286 consecutive supratentorial large ICH patients underwent surgery in our institute...

In the field of neurosurgery, often the dura mater cannot be sutured, and consequently, it requires a duraplasty procedure using a dural fascial graft. Since 1890, various materials have been researched as dura mater substitutes. Amniotic membrane, for example, is suitable as a dural graft material and has been used in neurosurgery since 2012. However, there has been little research on human patient's dural healing after the use of amniotic membrane in their duraplasty procedure. To address this gap, a clinical experimental study was undertaken to evaluate the human dural healing of 16 patients who had undergone duraplasty in decompressive craniectomy surgery at Dr...

In the treatment of severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), decompressive craniectomy is commonly used to remove a large portion of calvarial bone to allow unimpeded brain swelling. Hydrogels have the potential to revolutionize TBI treatment by permitting a single-surgical intervention, remaining pliable during brain swelling, and tuned to regenerate bone after swelling has subsided. With this motivation, our goal is to present a pliable material capable of regenerating calvarial bone across a critical size defect...

BACKGROUND: Craniectomy is a frequently performed neurosurgical procedure and coverage of the cranial defect is necessary for protection of the underlying brain, cosmesis, and patient satisfaction. We report a new technique for intraoperative in-situ synthetic cranioplasty to allow for one-step resection of skull osteoma and reconstruction of cranial defect. Strategies of intraoperative cranioplasty are reviewed. METHOD: A 48-year-old man presents with a suspected benign osteoma over his forehead...

BACKGROUND: Adult tethered cord syndrome is a rare neurological disorder that classically presents with back or leg pain, weakness, and urinary dysfunction. Spinal cord tethering has been associated with acquired Chiari malformations. While the effects of tethered cord release on Chiari malformation symptoms have been previously described, we report an unusual case of acquired tethered cord syndrome following Chiari decompression. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report a 68-year-old man with a history of distant T12-level spinal cord injury who presented with two weeks of progressive bilateral lower extremity weakness...

Background: Normal saline (NS) is a common fluid of choice in neurosurgery and neuro-intensive care unit (ICU), but it does not contain other electrolytes and has the potential to cause hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis with prolonged infusion. These problems may be reduced with the availability of balanced fluid (BF), which becomes a more physiological isotonic solution with the presence of complete electrolyte content. This study aimed to compare the changes in electrolytes and acid-base between NS and BF (Sterofundin® ISO) therapy for post-operative severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients in neuro-ICU...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There is little doubt that decompressive craniectomy can reduce mortality following malignant middle cerebral infarction or severe traumatic brain injury. However, the concern has always been that the reduction in mortality comes at the cost of an increase in the number of survivors with severe neurological disability. RECENT FINDINGS: There has been a number of large multicentre randomized trials investigating surgical efficacy of the procedure...

Brain perfusion is reduced early after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) due to intracranial hypertension and early vasospasm. The contribution of these two mechanisms is unknown. By performing a prophylactic decompressive craniectomy (DC) in a rat model of SAH we aimed to study brain perfusion after the component of intracranial hypertension has been eliminated. We used 2x2 factorial design, where rats received either decompressive craniectomy or sham operation followed by injection of 250 microl of blood or normal saline into prechiasmatic cistern...

Objective: Massive intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and major infarction (MI) are devastating cerebral vascular diseases. Decompression craniectomy (DC) is a common treatment approach for these diseases and acceptable clinical results have been reported. Author experienced the postoperative intracranaial pressure (ICP) trend is somewhat different between the ICH and MI patients. In this study, we compare the ICP trend following DC and evaluate the clinical significance. Methods: One hundred forty-three patients who underwent DC following massive ICH (81 cases) or MI (62 cases) were analyzed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Currently, implantation of patient-specific cranial prostheses requires reoperation after a period for design and formulation by a third-party manufacturer. Recently, 3-dimensional (3D) printing via fused deposition modeling has demonstrated increased ease of use, rapid production time, and significantly reduced costs, enabling expanded potential for surgical application. Three-dimensional printing may allow neurosurgeons to remove bone, perform a rapid intraoperative scan of the opening, and 3D print custom cranioplastic prostheses during the remainder of the procedure...
