Severe hydrocephalic macrocephaly can cause significant morbidity in infants due to positioning difficulties, skin breakdown, and poor cosmesis. Many surgeons over the past decades have described a variety of surgical techniques of reduction cranioplasty. In this article, the authors describe a novel technique for skull reduction cranioplasty with modified bilateral Pi craniectomy.

Decompressive craniectomy (DC) is an established neurosurgical emergency technique. Patient selection, optimal timing, and technical aspects related to DC and subsequent cranioplasty remain subjects o...
Recurrent subdural hematoma (SDH) is commonly encountered in clinical practice. Multiple surgical techniques have been reported for the management of recurrent SDH with variable success and complicati...
Decompressive craniectomy is a life-saving procedure in the setting of malignant brain swelling. Patients who survive require cranioplasty for anatomical reconstruction and cerebral protection. Autolo...
To prevent complications following decompressive craniectomy (DC), such as sinking skin flap syndrome, studies suggested early cranioplasty (CP). However, several groups reported higher complication r...
Previously, the authors modified the surgical technique to preserve tibial bone mass for Oxford unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical outcom...
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...
Several technical modifications based on the anatomical position of the neurovascular bundle and its bony mandibular canal have been developed, aiming to prevent injury to the intraalveola...
Investigating the change in Test- Retest- reliability in healthy individuals when applying a modified easy to use facilitation technique compared to standard facilitation technique and ana...
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...
Technique that utilizes low-stringency polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification with single primers of arbitrary sequence to generate strain-specific arrays of anonymous DNA fragments. RAPD technique may be used to determine taxonomic identity, assess kinship relationships, analyze mixed genome samples, and create specific probes.
Organisms whose GENOME has been changed by a GENETIC ENGINEERING technique.
A form of fluorescent antibody technique commonly used to detect serum antibodies and immune complexes in tissues and microorganisms in specimens from patients with infectious diseases. The technique involves formation of an antigen-antibody complex which is labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody. (From Bennington, Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)
A personality assessment technique in which the subject or observer indicates the degree to which a standardized set of descriptive statements actually describes the subject. The term reflects "sorting" procedures occasionally used with this technique.
Any technique by which an unknown color is evaluated in terms of standard colors. The technique may be visual, photoelectric, or indirect by means of spectrophotometry. It is used in chemistry and physics. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
