Prevalence of Trephined Syndrome After Decompressive Craniectomy

Decompressive craniectomy is frequently used to treat increased intracranial pressure or an intracranial mass effect. Trephined Syndrome describes a neurological deterioration, which is at...

Intracranial Pressure After Decompressive Craniectomy

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...

Amniotic Membrane in Decompressive Craniectomy to Reduce Scarring

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...

Coagulation Activation by Hyperosmolar Agents in Intracranial Hypertension

Osmotherapy consists in the therapeutic use of osmotically active substances with the aim of reducing the volume and therefore the intracranial pressure. It therefore represents an essenti...

Posterior bi-parietal decompressive craniectomy in refractory intracranial hypertension secondary to civilian gunshot wound. Case report and review of literature.

Decompressive craniectomy is recommended as second tier therapy for unresponsive intracranial hypertension in Traumatic Brain Injury. There have been reports of a Bi-Occipital craniectomy in cases whe...

Bone Flap Conservation In The Scalp After Decompressive Craniectomy.

Decompressive craniectomy may be used as a primary or secondary treatment for intracranial hypertension and is clearly associated with reduced mortality. The removed bone flap is usually preserved in ...

Current diagnosis and treatment of idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is cha-racterized by raised intracranial pressure of unknown origin, leading to persisting visual loss if left untreated. Purpose - We assessed timing of surgery, ...

A clinical decision rule to predict intracranial hypertension in severe traumatic brain injury.

While existing guidelines support the treatment of intracranial hypertension in severe traumatic brain injury (TBI), it is unclear when to suspect and initiate treatment for high intracranial pressure...

Secondary hypertension in patients with saccular intracranial aneurysm disease: A population based study.

Secondary hypertension is a serious form of hypertension, involving 5% to 10% of all hypertension patients. Hypertension is a risk factor of the saccular intracranial aneurysm (sIA) disease and subara...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Increased pressure within the cranial vault. This may result from several conditions, including HYDROCEPHALUS; BRAIN EDEMA; intracranial masses; severe systemic HYPERTENSION; PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI; and other disorders.

Excision of part of the skull. This procedure is used to treat elevated intracranial pressure that is unresponsive to conventional treatment.

A well-circumscribed mass composed of tuberculous granulation tissue that may occur in the cerebral hemispheres, cerebellum, brain stem, or perimeningeal spaces. Multiple lesions are quite common. Management of intracranial manifestations vary with lesion site. Intracranial tuberculomas may be associated with SEIZURES, focal neurologic deficits, and INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION. Spinal cord tuberculomas may be associated with localized or radicular pain, weakness, sensory loss, and incontinence. Tuberculomas may arise as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS, but also occur in immunocompetent individuals.

Bleeding into the SUBARACHNOID SPACE due to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Minor hemorrhages may be asymptomatic; moderate to severe hemorrhages may be associated with INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION and VASOSPASM, INTRACRANIAL.

Bleeding within the SKULL that is caused by systemic HYPERTENSION, usually in association with INTRACRANIAL ARTERIOSCLEROSIS. Hypertensive hemorrhages are most frequent in the BASAL GANGLIA; CEREBELLUM; PONS; and THALAMUS; but may also involve the CEREBRAL CORTEX, subcortical white matter, and other brain structures.
