Emergent craniotomy in rural and regional settings: recommendations from a tertiary neurosurgery unit: diagnosis and surgical decision-making.

ANZ J Surg 2022 Jun 17. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Kenneth G Jamieson Department of Neurosurgery, Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Largely attributed to the tyranny of distance, timely transfer of patients with major traumatic brain injuries (TBI) from rural or regional hospitals to metropolitan trauma centres is not always feasible. This has warranted emergent craniotomies to be undertaken by non-neurosurgeons at their local hospitals with previous acceptable results reported in regional Australia. Our institution endorses this ongoing potentially life-saving practice when necessary and emphasize the need for neurosurgical units to provide ongoing TBI education to peripheral hospitals.
