Effect of External Decompression on Cerebral Venous System Occlusion
Decompressive craniectomy (external decompression) is available for patients with uncontrollable intracranial hypertension. However, some authors have reported that external decompression has no beneficial effects due to edema enhancement . We have developed a new experimental model of cerebral venous system occlusion . The venous occlusion in this model led to intracranial hypertension. In this study, we investigated the effect of decompressive craniectomy on the cerebral circulation and cerebral edema in this model.
