The mechanics of decompressive craniectomy: Personalized simulations

Abstract:

Decompressive craniectomy is a traditional but controversial surgical procedure that removes part of the skull to allow an injured and swollen brain to expand outward. Recent studies suggest that mechanical strain is associated with its undesired, high failure rates. However, the precise strain fields induced by the craniectomy are unknown. Here we create a personalized craniectomy model from magnetic resonance images to quantify the strains during a decompressive craniectomy using finite ele...
