Decompressive craniectomy patients
All of the patients that undergo decompressive craniectomy due to intracranial mass lesion and are transferred to neuro-rehabilitation unit in our university hospital.
Procedure: Decompressive craniectomy
Decompressive craniectomy is a surgical procedure used to treat patients with acute intractable intracranial hypertension. It includes removing a large portion of lateral skull wall in order to alleviate the effects of increased intracranial pressure and allow the brain to expand.
Cranioplasty is a routine neurosurgical procedure to repair the continuity of the bone tissue of the skull with autologous bone or synthetic bone flap from heterologous material.
- Presence of Trephined Syndrome [ Time Frame: From patients admission to discharge from rehabilitation (approx. 3 months). ]To determine the incidence and severity of the the Trephined Syndrome in relation to delay to cranioplasty.
- Complications related to cranioplasty [ Time Frame: From patients admission to discharge from rehabilitation (approx. 3 months). ]To record the incidence of complications, such as hemorrhagic or infectious, related to cranioplasty intervention.
- Relation of delay to cranioplasty with the risk of complications [ Time Frame: From patients admission to discharge from rehabilitation (approx. 3 months). ]To investigate the relationship between cranioplasty delay and complications related with cranioplasty.
