Summary of "Cosmetic outcome of cranioplasty following decompressive craniectomy - an overlooked aspect."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
