The aim of the present study was to investigate the risk factors for hydrocephalus after decompressive craniectomy (DC) for hemispheric cerebral infarction. This study selected 28 patients who underwent DC for malignant hemispheric cerebral infarction. The patients' clinical and radiologic findings were retrospectively reviewed. Fourteen of the 28 patients were male and 14 were female, with an age range from 34 to 80 years (mean, 63.5 years). Eighteen patients (64.3%) underwent DC within 48… CONTINUE READING
