This is an observational study designed to research the effect of mannitol on the concentration of intraoperative serum potassium in patients undergoing craniotomy, and to guide the safe use of mannitol during craniotomy.
The effectiveness of craniotomy in the treatment of intracerebral hemorrhage remains controversial. Two main types of minimally invasive surgery, endoscopic evacuation and stereotactic aspiration, have been attempted for hematoma removal and show some advantages. However, prospective and controlled studies are still lacking. This is a multi-center randomized controlled trial designed to determine whether minimally invasive surgeries will improve the outcome in patients with hyp...
Post-craniotomy emergence hypertension is a common phenomenon that may predispose to development of intracranial hematoma and cerebral edema.The aim of this study is to compare the safety and efficacy of Mgso4 versus lidocaine infusion for control of emergence hypertension after craniotomy.
This protocol is designed to assess the need for seizure prophylaxis in the perioperative period for patients undergoing craniotomy for suspected diagnosis of new, recurrent or transformed glioma (WHO grade I-IV). This will be determined by observing the impact of Lacosamide (LCM), Levetiracetam (LEV), or no anti-epileptic drug (AED) on whether visits to the emergency department (ED) or hospital re-admissions occur within 30 days after craniotomy. A secondary endpoint will eval...
Prospective randomised double-blinded placebo-controlled trial on the efficacy of scalp blocks on hemodynamic stability and opioid consumption during and after craniotomy.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of lidocaine in antiarrhythmic dosage on postoperative cognitive dysfunction in supratentorial craniotomy.
A majority of patients would suffer from moderate-to-severe postoperative pain after undergoing craniotomy. As a result, adequate pain control is essential for patients' prognosis and their postoperative life quality. Although opioids administration is regarded as the first-line analgesic for post-craniotomy pain management, it may be associated with delayed awakening, respiratory depression, hypercarbia and it may interfere with the neurologic examination. For the avoidance of...
Un-ruptured intracranial aneurysm is a complex disease that seriously affects human life and health. At present, the treatment of intracranial aneurysm is divided into interventional treatment and craniotomy clipping, the two treatment methods are different in the intervention effect of aneurysm, for example, the complications of interventional therapy are lower than craniotomy clipping, but the long-term patency rate is lower than craniotomy clipping, and there is no standard ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of acupuncture on inflammation and immune function after craniotomy. This study will be a single-center, parallel group clinical trial that will be conducted at Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong, Seoul, Korea.
Awake craniotomy for tumor surgery allows for mapping of speech, motor and sensory function during tumor resection. Awake craniotomy is increasingly utilized as it has several advantages over a traditional general anesthetic technique. Though many patients tolerate awake cranial surgery well, recent studies found that roughly 30% of patients experience moderate to severe pain and anxiety, while 50% report moderate fear and 11% report severe fear. Therefore, alternative methods ...
Postoperative delirium may result in many adverse complications. At present little is known about postoperative delirium in patients after crniotomy because they may manifest similar symptoms to definitely delirium for some structural brain disease. Objective of this study is to find out incidence and risk factors of postoperative delirium in patients after elective craniotomy and also the relationship of postoperative delirium with clinical outcome.
The purpose of this randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled pilot study is to investigate whether dexmedetomidine when used as an adjuvant to general anesthesia can decrease the harmful effects of anesthesia and surgery on intelligence development in pediatric patients undergoing craniotomy.
Surgical-site infection is the most commonly reported nosocomial infection in patients undergoing surgery and 3rd most nosocomial infection in hospitalized patients. The SSI is associated with increases of length of hospitalization for 6 days and increases the hospital's cost by $ 300. Because of these, prevention of SSI with appropriate antibiotic is essential.
The investigators aim to retrospectively map the delays in the acute care of traumatic brain injury patients necessitating emergent craniotomies.
This study aims to investigate whether detailed and illustrated information (comics) about anaesthesia reduce preoperative anxiety in children being subjects to craniotomy. Children scheduled for craniotomy are randomized to groups receiving a comic leaflet explaining the course of anaesthesia before preanaesthesia visit or no intervention. Preoperative anxiety is assessed with anxiety scale STAIC for the two groups of participants.
Ruptured intracranial aneurysms is currently a common disease that seriously affects human health and quality of life due to its high morbidity,high mortality and high disability. At present,Ruptured intracranial aneurysms are treated with craniotomy clipping and interventional embolization ,but for ruptured wide-neck intracranial aneurysms, the treatment of craniotomy clipping and coiling embolization are not effective.With the improvement of endovascular treatment materials a...
This study protocol examines a comparison between local and general anesthesia (Awake vs. Asleep Craniotomy) in the removal of brain tumors that are in areas of the brain that do not directly control bodily functions (non-eloquent gliomas).
Vitamin D is a hormone mainly synthesized in the skin in the presence of sunlight. Like other hormones, vitamin D plays a role in a wide range of processes in the body. Some studies have shown vitamin D has anti-inflammatory effects in the body by reducing the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines and suppressing T-cell responses. Therefore, vitamin D may be effective on reduce pain by such mechanisms. In this trial patients with brain tumor under craniotomy will receive a sing...
This is a clinical trial where patients who present to the neurosurgery service in need of a procedure that requires a pterional craniotomy will be screened, and if eligible, enrolled for the randomization in the placement of a drain at the surgical site. At present, there is not a protocol for whether or not to use a drain following this procedure. There is some debate on whether it serves any real benefit for the patient or if it may actually be detrimental in cases where inf...

Aim of this trial: To investigate whether post-craniotomy analgesia with (i) intravenous (IV) parecoxib plus intravenous paracetamol is superior to (ii) intravenous paracetamol alone. Study Hypothesis: Post-operative analgesia with intravenous parecoxib in combination with intravenous paracetamol will be superior to intravenous paracetamol alone.
An optimal analgesic therapy is very important for postoperative recovery. In recent years, several studies showed that the prevalence of the moderate to severe pain after craniotomy ranged from 69 to 87% of patients. In a previous study, the investigators showed that the use of morphine based patient controlled analgesia prevented moderate to severe postoperative pain in patients undergoing supratentorial craniotomy. Morphine related side effects such as sedation, miosis, resp...
What is the efficacy and safety of q 30 minutes vs. q 1hour glucose sampling and intervention for an intensive insulin protocol to achieve and maintain euglycemia in non-diabetic patients undergoing craniotomy? The investigators hypothesize that in non-diabetic patients undergoing craniotomy, monitoring glucose and modifying insulin infusions every 30 minutes compared to every hour will help them reach target glucose levels faster and maintain them more efficiently with the sam...
