Abstract:Cranioplasty is often considered as a low-risk procedure following craniectomy. In our cohort, a 20% risk of major complications, including death, was identified. These findings contribute to the literature, emphasising that cranioplasty is a high-risk procedure. Whilst compelling reasons may guide the undertaking of craniectomy, it is essential that consideration is given to the significant subsequent risks of cranioplasty.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
