Decompressive Craniectomy (Original PDF from Publisher)


By Bizhan Aarabi, Marc Simard
Although decompressive craniectomy is a surgical procedure that has been with us for the past 100 years, its prognostic value in long-term outcomes remains doubtful and its use is at a crossroads. Three randomized trials and numerous cohorts, along with comparative studies over the past 15 years have significantly improved our understanding of this simple surgical procedure. In writing this book, the authors not only tried to present state-of-the-art evidence describing the molecular and cellular cascades discovered during the past 40 years and current critical care management of traumatic brain injury, but also found it very appropriate to consider the views of scientists who have contributed immensely in understanding the pathobiology of severe head injury. The current values of multimodality monitoring of neurochemical processes and the contribution of maximal medical management through guidelines help to understand how far research concerning the management of head injury has come.
