OBJECTIVE To examine the long-term prognosis in patients with 'malignant' supratentorial ischemia of the right hemisphere treated with hemicraniectomy, especially in respect to depression, with a focus on age as a possible predictor of outcome. METHODS We performed a prospective, long-term, follow-up examination in 23 survivors of 32 patients (mortality 28.1%) treated with hemicraniectomy for malignant middle cerebral artery (MCA) infarction of the right hemisphere, who were identified in our… CONTINUE READING
