Killeen, Tim; Fortunati, Mathias; Myanger, Esha; Rüfenacht, Daniel; Ryskeldiyev, Nurzhan; Akshulakov, Serik; Cesnulis, Evaldas (2017). Symptomatic tension pneumocephalus following Palacos® cranioplasty in a shunted patient. British Journal of Neurosurgery:Epub ahead of print.

Abstract

Tension pneumocephalus is an exceedingly rare complication of cerebrospinal fluid diversion occurring after surgery, trauma or spontaneous fistula formation. We report a case in a patient with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt who developed symptomatic tension pneumocephalus via a skin defect within 24 hours of undergoing bone cement cranioplasty.
