• dura mater
  • This study proposes to analyze the cranial remodeling achieved through the use of a dynamic craniotomy, without detachment of the dura mater in cranial deformities caused by craniosynostosis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Craniotomy is distinguished from craniectomy (in which the skull flap is not immediately replaced, allowing the brain to swell, thus reducing intracranial pressure) and from trepanation, the creation of a burr hole through the cranium in to the dura mater. (wikipedia.org)
  • drape
  • The present invention is a fenestrated craniotomy drape including a main sheet, translucent anesthesia side screens, a gusset forming the corners of the anterior edges of the drape, a run-off collection pouch whose back side is pressed flat and affixed to the drape, with a back side fenestration surrounding.

  • 2. The craniotomy drape of claim 1 , further comprising a fenestration in the main sheet. (google.com)
  • 3. The craniotomy drape of claim 2 , further comprising an absorbent sheet layered on top of the main sheet, said absorbent sheet includes a fenestration incident to the fenestration of the main sheet. (google.com)
  • 4. The craniotomy drape of claim 3 , further comprising an incise sheet between the main sheet and the absorbent sheet, wherein the incise sheet has an adhesive side, and further comprising a releasable layer on the adhesive side of the incise sheet. (google.com)
  • 5. The craniotomy drape of claim 3 , further comprising a fenestrated run-off pouch affixed to the absorbent sheet, with a back-side fenestration surrounding the fenestration of the main sheet, and a front-side fenestration. (google.com)

  • 7. The craniotomy drape of claim 6 , wherein the ductile material is metal wire. (google.com)
  • 8. The craniotomy drape of claim 3 , further comprising at least one tube holder attached either directly to the main sheet or to the absorbent sheet. (google.com)
  • 14. The craniotomy drape of claim 1 , wherein the anesthesia screen is clear. (google.com)
  • 15. A method of draping a patient for craniotomy procedures comprising using the craniotomy drape of claim 1 . (google.com)
  • severe
  • It is defined by the current International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-II) as a headache of variable intensity, most severe near the site of craniotomy motivated by non-traumatic reasons. (scielo.br)
  • scans
  • For some craniotomy procedures, doctors use computers and imaging (magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] or computerized tomography [CT] scans). (lifebridgehealth.org)
  • Before the operation, the patient will have undergone diagnostic procedures such as computed tomography scans (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to determine the underlying problem that required the craniotomy and to get a better look at the brain's structure. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Some craniotomy procedures may utilize the guidance of computers and imaging (magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] or computerized tomography [CT] scans) to reach the precise location within the brain that is to be treated. (nyhq.org)
  • removal
  • In general, a craniotomy will be preceded by an MRI scan which provides an image of the brain that the surgeon uses to plan the precise location for bone removal and the appropriate angle of access to the relevant brain areas. (wikipedia.org)
  • skull
  • The craniotomy begins with a surgeon removing an area of the skull over the tumor and cutting into the meninges, the membranes that protect the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • However, when the time elapsed between the craniotomy and headache onset is longer, diagnosis may be difficult and complex 1 . (scielo.br)
  • present
  • The present invention is in the field of surgical drapes, more particularly in the field of craniotomy drapes. (google.com)
  • We present four cases of headache with variable intensity, located in close proximity to a craniotomy incision which was performed for non-traumatic reasons. (scielo.br)
  • happens
  • Codeine may be given to relieve the headache that may occur as a result of stretching or irritation of the nerves of the scalp that happens during the craniotomy. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • deep
  • Rim enhancing mass with marked surrounding vasogenic oedema immediately deep to a craniotomy defect showing 2 sites of bone erosion involving the inner table indicating osteomyelitis. (radiopaedia.org)
