Abstract

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 [1]. We have developed a new experimental model of cerebral venous system occlusion [8]. 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.
