Right Craniotomy with Aneurysm Clipping and Ventriculostomy
This exhibit depicts a craniotomy procedure to evacuate a subdural hematoma and repair a carotid aneurysm. First, a skin flap is created exposing the skull. Drill holes are then burred to fashion a craniotomy flap. The bone flap is removed, a ventricular shunt is placed, and the dura is opened to evacuate the subdural hematoma. Once the hematoma is cleared, the carotid artery is dissected and two micro-clips are placed on the aneurysm. The dural flap is then closed and craniotomy flap replaced with plates and screws.
