Gene context of Craniotomy

  • In this study the influence of elective craniotomy on IL-6 plasma levels was evaluated [31].
  • Increase of interleukin-6 plasma levels after elective craniotomy: influence of interleukin-10 and catecholamines [31].
  • METHODS: Histological sections of tumour biopsies obtained from patients undergoing craniotomies were stained for PCNA expression [32].
  • TG-pl-BMP-2 in fibrin was evaluated in vivo in critical-size craniotomy defects in rats, where it induced 76% more defect healing with bone at 3 weeks with a dose of 1 mug/defect than wildtype BMP-2 in fibrin [33].
  • However, in patients with high p53 and Ki67 immunoreactivity and in whom the dura was not closed at the time of craniotomy, the possibility of early extradural failure should be considered [34].
