• Headaches
  • We review the current known pathophysiology of post-craniotomy headaches and present a hypothesis suggesting a greater recognition of the potential contribution of neuroma formation in areas of scars tissue to contribute to this kind of headache. (scielo.br)
  • brain

  • Instead it is thought to result from changes in perfusion of the delicate cellular structures that are present in the growing brain, augmented by the immaturity of the cerebral circulatory system, which is especially vulnerable to hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • During an internship at the Jewish Hospital of Brooklyn, he developed an interest in neurosurgery, and had a paper published in 1944, "A Method of Holding Galea Hemostats in Craniotomies", in which he proposed a new type of clamp to be used while performing a craniotomy during brain surgery.

  • surgery
  • Moreover, at present, no generalized standard indications have been adopted for this surgery, which is still in its exploratory stage. (hindawi.com)
  • The majority of awake craniotomy failures were preventable by adequate patient selection and avoiding side effects of drugs administered during surgery. (biomedsearch.com)
  • In February 1958, a heart-lung machine Kantrowitz had developed was used during open heart surgery on a six-year-old boy while the surgeons repaired a one-inch hole between the chambers of the boy's heart that was present since birth. (wikipedia.org)
  • cases
  • 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)

  • loss
  • the sound of children playing and even the patient's own voice are typical examples of sounds that can cause a loss of balance when this condition is present, although there are countless others. (wikipedia.org)
