Acute subdural hematoma caused by cerebral aneurysm rupture is rare. We describe a clinical case of an acute subdural hematoma developed due to rupture of an aneurysm at the M1 segment bifurcation of the middle cerebral artery (MCA). The acute subdural hematoma associated with intracranial hypertension and transtentorial herniation resulted in a comatose condition. The patient underwent decompressive craniectomy, hematoma removal, and clipping of the aneurysm. A significant improvement was observed in the postoperative period...

Craniomaxillofacial reconstructive surgery is a challenging field. First it aims to restore primary functions and second to preserve craniofacial anatomical features like symmetry and harmony. Three-dimensional (3D) printed biomodels have been widely adopted in medical fields by providing tactile feedback and a superior appreciation of visuospatial relationship between anatomical structures. Craniomaxillofacial reconstructive surgery was one of the first areas to implement 3D printing technology in their practice...

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is thought to result from endothelial dysfunction and breakdown of the blood-brain barrier with subsequent vasogenic edema. Abrupt hypertension has been identified as one of its risk factors. We present a rare case of PRES in the anterior circulation with sudden onset of left hemiparesis and rapid neurological deterioration on the basis of hypertensive crisis. Due to refractory intracranial hypertension, the patient required emergent right decompressive craniectomy...

We report the first case of severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome (SFTS) and a spontaneous acute subdural hematoma (SDH) in Korea. A 79-year-old male presented with fever and thrombocytopenia. On the third day of hospitalization, his mental changed from drowsy to semi-coma. Brain computed tomography indicated an acute subdural hemorrhage on the right convexity. He was given early decompressive craniectomy, but did not survive. Real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction analysis of a blood sample indicated the presence of SFTS virus (SFTSV)...

OBJECTIVE: The aims of current study are to compare complications following cranioplasty (CP) using either sterilized autologous bone or polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), and to identify the risk factors for two of the most common complications: bone flap resorption (BFR) and surgical site infection (SSI). METHODS: Between January 2004 and December 2013, 127 patients underwent CP and were followed at least 12 months. Variables, including sex, age, initial diagnosis, time interval between decompressive craniectomy (DC) and CP, operation time, size of bone flap, and presence of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt, were analyzed to identify the risk factors for BFR and SSI...

Cranioplasty is an in evitable operation conducted after decompressive craniectomy (DC). The primary goals of cranioplasty after DC are to protect the brain, achieve a natural appearance and prevent sinking skin flap syndrome (or syndrome of the trephined). Furthermore, restoring patients' functional outcome and supplementing external defects helps patients improve their self-esteem. Although early cranioplasty is preferred in recent year, optimal timing for cranioplasty remains a controversial topic. Autologous bone flaps are the most ideal substitute for cranioplasty...

The importance of treating traumatic brain injury (TBI) is well known worldwide. Although many studies have been conducted in this topic, there is still much uncertainty about the effectiveness of surgical treatment in TBI. Recently, good randomized controlled trial (RCT) papers about the effectiveness of decompressive craniectomy (DC) in TBI has been published. In this article, we will review the overall contents of the DC (historical base, surgical technic, rationale, complications) and the results of the recently published RCT paper...

There is little doubt that decompressive craniectomy can reduce mortality however, the results of a recent study has provided more evidence to inform the debate regarding clinical and ethical concerns that it merely converts death into survival with severe disability or in a vegetative state. The recently published RESCUEicp trial compared last-tier secondary decompressive craniectomy with continued medical management for refractory intracranial hypertension after severe traumatic brain injury. Patients were randomly assigned to decompressive craniectomy with medical therapy or to receive continued medical therapy with the option of adding barbiturates...

Cranioplasty is a commonly performed procedure following decompressive craniectomy. The patients are usually young earning persons and increasing cost of treatment is difficult to bear especially in low and middle income countries. A variety of options are available for cranioplasty ranging from autologus bone graft to xenograft and synthetic materials. Presently the autologous cryopreserved or subcutaneously preserved bone graft is considered as preferred choice but is has its drawback of bone resorption and infection ...

Cysticercosis is a common helminthic infection worldwide, endemic in Central and South America, sub-Saharan Africa, and Southeast Asia. Neurocysticercosis typically involves brain parenchyma, subarachnoid space, and the ventricular system. Although the spinal cord is frequently involved in patients with parenchymal neurocysticercosis, isolated spinal involvement is rare, occurring in only 1-3% of patients. We report a case of racemose spinal neurocysticercosis with brain parenchyma involvement in a 49-year-old Mexican man, who presented with unsteady gait and bilateral arm numbness and weakness...

Background Type I Chiari malformation presents without an associated hydromyelia in 30 to 70% of cases, yet there is no agreement regarding the optimal surgical treatment for these patients. We review our experience for treating symptomatic adult type I Chiari malformation without hydromyelia using a suboccipital bone decompression of the hindbrain and no duraplasty in 12 adult patients. Outcome was measured according to the Chicago Chiari Outcome Scale (CCOS). Results Nine of 12 patients were female; average age at surgery was 34...

BACKGROUND: Following decompressive craniectomy, hydrocephalus is a common complication often requiring placement of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt (VPS). Complications in the presence of a VPS have been reported but without clear association. METHODS: PRISMA guidelines were used to perform a literature search using PubMed to identify articles that published the complication rates associated with staged or simultaneous cranioplasty and VPS. From event rates, odds ratios [OR, 95% Confidence Interval (CI)] of complications were calculated...

BACKGROUND: Decompressive craniectomy is performed to relieve intracranial pressure as an emergency procedure. There is no large study to systematically evaluate the benefit of decompressive craniectomy versus best medical therapy. This study evaluates the survival and long-term functional outcomes of decompressive craniectomy for spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage. METHODS: A total of 54 eligible patients with spontaneous supratentorial hemorrhage (median age 55, IQR 47-64) who underwent decompressive craniectomy were retrospectively matched to 72 patients managed with best medical treatment (median age 58, IQR 32-74)...

As ancient Greeks started looking for deities that could fulfil the pragmatic needs of common people, local heroes started being mythologized and worshipped through cults. The most widespread such example was Asclepius, possibly a skilled war surgeon who followed military expeditions to Colchis and Troy. He was worshipped at religious temples called Asclepieia where certain specific medical and surgical techniques were followed. The most advanced must have been skull trepanation, most likely done as an acute operation to release intracranial pressure...
