Analysis of the curative effect of a new decompressive craniectomy on the treatment of severe craniocerebral injury.
Objective: To compare the curative effects of a new decompressive craniectomy and the standard decompressive craniectomy on the treatment of severe and extra severe craniocerebral injury combined with cerebral contusion, encephaledema and malignant high cranial pressure. Methods: 56 patients with severe and extra severe craniocerebral injury were admitted in our hospital from December, 2012 to March, 2016. The patients were randomly divided into a test group (26 cases) and a control group (30 cases). The test group received the new decompressive craniectomy and the control group received the standard decompressive craniectomy. A comparative analysis was made concerning the clinical prognosis and curative effects of the two groups. Results: The rate of favorable prognosis of the test group (69.2%?18/26) is significantly higher than the control group (23.3%?7/30); the mortality rate of the test group (19.2%?5/26) is significant lower than the control group (43.3%, 13/30). Conclusion: The curative effect of the new decompressive craniectomy is significantly better than the standard decompressive craniectomy in the treatment of severe and extra severe craniocerebral injury.Author(s): Qianlei Liang, Xin Chen, Dehua Liu, Yueting Gao, Yongchuan Guo
