Abstract

Given the continued use of decompressive craniectomy in the management of neurological emergencies recognition of complications is important in order for patients to gain maximal benefit during rehabilitation. One complication that has received relatively little attention is the neurological dysfunction that can occur due to distortion of the brain under the scalp as cerebral oedema subsides. The neurological deterioration that can occur can take many forms and this is probably due to a multifactorial pathophysiology. Recognition of this condition is important if delays in the rehabilitation process are to be avoided. This review discusses the historical background, possible pathophysiological mechanisms, clinical incidence and implications for healthcare workers involved in neurorehabilitation.
