During Procedure

The hair on the part of the scalp where incision will be made are shaved off and the area is cleaned. In conventional craniotomy, an incision is made on the part of the scalp depending upon the part of the brain to be treated. A hole is made in the skull and the bone flap is removed. The bone flap is usually placed back after the surgery is performed and is secured using wires, sutures or metal plates. Craniectomy: In some cases like when swelling is expected post surgery or when there is trauma to the bone itself, the bone may not be replaced or may be replaced later. When it is to be replaced later, it is protected and preserved in the patientís body at another location. In case the bone flap is damaged and cannot be replaced, reconstruction with an artificial bone is done later. Craniectomy: It is done to remove tumors, to treat an aneurysm, to drain blood and fluid from an infectious site or to remove damaged brain tissue.
