Transcranial Decompression of Optic Nerve After Trauma

  • J. Brihaye

Abstract

The decision to operate, the operative technique and the appraisal of results in surgery of traumatic amaurosis are in relation with the clinical data, themselves dependent upon the pathology of the lesion. Therefore, before dealing with the surgical treatment, we will examine the clinical course and, afterwards, we will discuss the pathological factors which can be considered as responsible for the loss of vision.
