Craniotomy

Follow-up

  • Give steroids for some days after the operation, usually according to a routine, gradual-reduction schedule.
  • Thrombosis prophylaxis with LMWH (low molecular weight heparin) should be given routinely.
  • MRI control should be performed on the first post-operative day.
  • The bandage should normally be removed after a few days.
  • The patient is usually discharged to a local hospital 2-3 days after the operation, depending on the clinical course.
  • Remove staples after approx. 12 days.

Any oncological treatment should begin approximately one month after the operation. The patient should be monitored by an oncology specialist with regular MRI examinations. If there is remaining tumor, resection may be considered in some cases.
