Cranioplasty (CP) is an obligatory surgery after decompressive craniectomy (DC). The primary objective is to protect brain from external injury, and prevent syndrome of trephined. In a government hospital, such cases pose significant burden to trauma centre. Because of this reason, cosmetic outcome is never taken into account for the CP. We present results of CP performed at our hospital.

We redesign the decompressive craniectomy and cranioplasty procedures in the hope to decrease the inherent risk of complications. This novel technique called decompressive cranioplasty may not only de...
Decompressive craniectomy is used for arresting hypertension-dislocation syndrome developing in seriuos patients in the acute period of subarachnoid hemorrhage. After stabilization of the patient's ne...
Complications following cranioplasty with either autografts or cranial implants are commonly reported in pediatric patients. However, data regarding cranioplasty strategies, complications and long-ter...
Cranioplasty can improve a patient's psychosocial and cognitive functions after decompressive craniectomy, however seizures are a common complication after cranioplasty. The risk factors for early and...
In children, decompressive craniectomy is commonly performed in cases of increased intracranial pressure that is not medically managed. Currently, it is standard practice to perform cranioplasty after...
Decompressive craniectomy is frequently used to treat increased intracranial pressure or an intracranial mass effect. Trephined Syndrome describes a neurological deterioration, which is at...
This will be a multicenter prospective randomized study of adult patients with an acquired skull defect as a result of craniectomy and considered suitable for cranioplasty, i.e. reconstruc...
Observational study to investigate the natural course of intracranial pressure (ICP) after decompressive craniectomy (DC) using long-term telemetric ICP monitoring. Patients will have cont...
The purpose of this study is to examine the impact of cranioplasty on cerebral hemodynamic and blood flow as prognostic factor in patients receiving decompressive craniectomy for Head inj...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of dHACM in reducing scar tissue formation in craniectomy patients as well as facilitating reoperation and repair. Specifically t...
The internal lateral ligament that travels from the medial aspect of the ELBOW uniting the distal aspect of the HUMERUS to the proximal aspect of the ULNA.
Excision of part of the skull. This procedure is used to treat elevated intracranial pressure that is unresponsive to conventional treatment.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Artificial substitutes for body parts, and materials inserted into tissue for functional, cosmetic, or therapeutic purposes. Prostheses can be functional, as in the case of artificial arms and legs, or cosmetic, as in the case of an artificial eye. Implants, all surgically inserted or grafted into the body, tend to be used therapeutically. IMPLANTS, EXPERIMENTAL is available for those used experimentally.
A yellow fat obtained from sheep's wool. It is used as an emollient, cosmetic, and pharmaceutic aid.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
