Brain death after decompressive craniectomy: Incidence and pathophysiological mechanisms.

Abstract

PURPOSE Patients who received decompressive craniectomy (DC) are usually not regarded to qualify for brain death (BD) as intracranial pressure (ICP) is not assumed to reach levels critical enough to cause cerebral perfusion failure. Here we investigated the incidence of BD after DC and analyzed the pathophysiological mechanisms. MATERIALS AND METHODS We… (More)
