Use of tissue glue to prevent collapse of the cortical mantle during and after cranial surgery in children: a technical note

Abstract

Young children with significant ventricular dilatation or large intracranial fluid spaces often have a very thin cortical mantle as a result of persistently raised intracranial pressure. This rim of cortex has a tendency to fall away from the dura into the cavity during and after intracranial surgery, due to the lack of support, once the pressure in the… (More)
