The Second Operation Cuts The Head Bone?
We had an accident as a result of my son who was stuck in the head, the doctor ended up cutting the fractured head bone but only about 7 cm and in 3 months the second operation was the next medical action, was there any tools installed to connect the head bone that had been cut
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are sorry about what happened to you and your family. Surgical cutting of the skull is called a craniotomy. A craniotomy is performed by opening the skull to correct the problem, which can take the form of:
Serious life-threatening head injury if not treated promptly
Brain aneurysms or enlargement of brain blood vessels that are prone to rupture
Brain abscess or pus buildup in the brain
Buildup of brain fluid or hydrocephalus
The doctor who will perform this procedure is a neurosurgeon. Regarding your question, the specifics regarding the treatment plan, such as how big the skull will be cut, how many times the operation will take, how long it will take, and what the target for recovery is, it can vary depending on what the cause is, how severe it is, how old the patient is, what kind of illness he has and so on. So we cannot explain with certainty for the next medical action. It is entirely known only to the doctor who treats your child. As a patient's parent who is of course still responsible for your child, you have the right to ask this doctor about this.
However, there are two options for joining the bone of the head that has been cut, namely using the same piece of skull that is connected using a brace until the pieces are completely integrated, or by using some kind of cement to patch the hole. Which choice to use, again it is up to your surgeon to decide. So once again, we highly recommend that you ask the doctor directly about this, and don't hesitate to ask anything because it's your right. Make sure there are no misunderstandings, and don't hesitate to ask again if you don't understand. So, hopefully it answers your question.
