Coronal and sagittal cuts were obtained during parietal or temporal craniotomies, and axial and sagittal slices in the case of frontal masses. After brain tumour. La incidencia de infecciones de craneotomía está en torno al 5%, con un rango entre . 2) had undergone an operation involving nasal sinuses (frontal sinus). Spanish term or phrase: craneotomia bifronto-orbitaria The “frontal bone” is “A cranial bone consisting of a vertical portion corresponding to.

We retrospectively reviewed the records of 5 patients with craniotomy infection that presented with wound swelling, purulent discharge and fever. The time required for tumour fronta was The objective of this study was to determine the anatomic reference points to perform a craniotomy in pigs. P1 in females and castrated males was at 2. Highgrade gliomas were more echogenic than low-grade tumours and than oedema.

One patient case number 2 died as a consequence of sepsis in the context of pneumonia five weeks after wound healing. The duration of surgeries ranged from 1h30′ to 5h30′, only two operations extending over 4 hours. Adequate cosmetic results, unprotected brain and disfiguring deformity until cranioplasty are controversial features following bone removal.

The technique consisted on three consecutive manoeuvres Figure 2. Review native language verification applications submitted by your peers. Bidimensional-ultrasound guided-craniotomy in the excision of supratentorial brain tumours.

Its use is mainly indicated in the removal of tumours located in, or close to, important anatomical and functional brain areas and to depict the presence of tumour rests after surgical removal of cerebral neoplasms. Attempts to crwneotomia infected craniotomies as an alternative to bone flap removal have been reported in the literature.

The KudoZ network provides a framework for translators and others to assist each other with translations or explanations of terms and short phrases. The distinction between superficial cranial wound infection and deep wound infection seems only theoretical since the subgaleal and epidural compartments are in contiguity when a craniotomy is performed.


Sandra Alboum KudoZ activity Questions: Infection is a relatively uncommon complication of craniotomy.

Organisms involved in craniotomy infections are common pathogens usually contaminating neurosurgical procedures or normal skin flora germs. The duration of surgeries ranged from 1h30’to 5h30’only two interventions extending over 4 hours.

Four neurosurgeons participated in the surgeries. It is our aim to stress the fact that maintaining a patient several weeks or months waiting for a cranioplasty is a rather disturbing situation that exposes the brain fronatl injury fronta creates a remarkable disfiguration. Surg Neurol ; Have a nice day and greetings!!!!!!!!! The initial interventions correspond to craniotomies performed for two intracranial tumours meningiomasone arteriovenous malformation and two decompressive craniectomies for haemorrhagic contusions and acute subdural haematoma, respectively.

Postcraniotomy meningitis seems to be increased in patients undergoing interventions entering the sinus, those harbouring external ventricular drains or intracranial pressure probes and patients with higher ASA score, as it has been recently reported The total number of craniotomies performed in that period was and the overall rate of infection was 2. Propionibacterium acnes infections after cranial neurosurgery. To check gross anatomical structures we used a 3 MHz probe and then a 5 MHz sound to define the brain tumour characteristics.

Neurosurg Clin N Am ; 3: Plast Reconstr Surg ; No data is available in the literature concerning the best parameters in case of infected flaps. Some technical aspects of this procedure are also discussed. After brain tumour removal and after a thorough irrigation with saline, new image acquisitions were performed to confirm the completeness of tumour excision.

When the antibiotic solution is instilled and kept inside for a period of time of, at least, some minutes, it is reasonable to believe that subgaleal and epidural spaces are bathed in the same antimicrobial fluid, making the insertion of epidural drains, probably, unnecessary. All patients cleared infection and achieved complete wound healing in weeks after the re-operation. No residual tumour was detected at the end of the surgery except in two cases in which a tumoral rest was left due to the proximity of the lesion to eloquent cerebral areas.


Wound debridement and drain placement was a standardized feature in all re-operations, as well as antibiotic irrigation and systemic dosage as described above. This range may be wider depending on the presence or not of certain risk factors.

craneotokia Parameters for autoclave procedure or which type of solution hydrogen peroxide, povidone-iodine, clorhexidine or others is optimum are not well-defined features. One patient died as a consequence of sepsis in the context of pneumonia some weeks after wound healing. Can J Neurol Sci ; The absence of antibiotic prophylaxis also seems to predispose to infection 2, Realising that this is a small case series and the follow up period is still short to conclude on the efficacy of the procedure, it is our view that wound debridement, intraoperative bone sterilization and reposition, and non-continuous antibiotic irrigation is a feasible intervention that should be considered a reasonable alternative ceaneotomia bone removal and delayed cranioplasty for infected craniotomies.

The use of frozen autogenous bone flaps in delayed cranioplasty revisited. Administration of a single prophylactic dose of vancomycin was recommended in a large randomized trial on the basis of a significantly reduced bone flap infection rate 4. The term “craniotomy infection” does not necessarily imply the presence of crsneotomia collections in a cranial space in particular either subgaleal, epidural or below the dura mater.
