Summary of "From decompressive craniectomy to cranioplasty and beyond-a pediatric neurosurgery perspective."

Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is an established neurosurgical emergency technique. Patient selection, optimal timing, and technical aspects related to DC and subsequent cranioplasty remain subjects of debate. For children, the overall degree of evidence is low, compared with randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in adults.
