Intracranial subdural hematoma after unintended durotomy
during spine surgery.
The parameters recorded were age, gender, presentation and diagnosis, type of operation, total theatre time in minutes (mins), blood loss / transfusion in millilitres (ml), durotomy
requiring suture repair, duration of hospital and ICU stay in days and complications.
Incidence of unintended durotomy
in spine surgery based on 108,478 cases.
Total excision of the intradural mass was done through standard durotomy
Drawbacks to nTMS the researchers pointed out include the observation that "the precision of motor mapping by nTMS can be impaired by various confounding factors, such as the definition of resting motor threshold, registration errors, navigation errors, and brain shift after durotomy
during spine surgery reportedly occurs at a rate of 3% to 14%.
permits evaluation of the cord for myelomalacia and relieves the intramedullary compression.
demonstrated a 1 x 3 cm mass occupying the spinal canal with peripheral displacement of the nerve roots.
Hemicraniectomy and durotomy
for malignant middle cerebral artery infarction.
A small dural and arachnoidal incision was made and a 2 to 3 mm segment of polyethylene tubing connected to a micropipette was inserted caudally through the durotomy
Decompressive hemicraniectomy for severe ischemic stroke currently is being investigated in major clinical trials, such as the Hemicraniectomy after MCA Infarction with Life-threatening Edema Trial (HAMLET), Hemicraniectomy and Durotomy
for Deterioration from Infarction Related Swelling Trial (HeaDDFIRST), Hemicraniectomy and Moderate Hypothermia in Patients with Severe Ischemic Stroke and Hemicraniectomy for Malignant Cerebral Artery Infarcts (HeMMI) (Internet Stroke Center, 2004).
after taking informed consent, in prone position followed by Laminectomy, durotomy
, myelotomy, microsurgical resection of tumour, and closure of wound.
