Focal pressure-related changes in brain perfusion and metabolism are discussed in single-suture craniosynostosis and brachycephalic cases (bicoronal synostosis). Raised intracranial pressure levels could be measured in some cases. In order to find possible loco-regional brain tissue changes during plastic surgery, we investigated oxygenation and perfusion parameters using non-invasive near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) probes. Twenty-two consecutively operated cases (mean age 7 months) with… CONTINUE READING
