Meeting ID: 957-780-803

Dr. Angelos Kolias is Clinical Lecturer in Neurosurgery at the Cambridge Neuroscience Community. He is also a member of the WFNS Young Neurosurgeons Committee. His main interest is about neurotrauma, in particular with the mechanisms of action of interventions for traumatic brain injury (TBI).

In this video Dr Kolias presents the aim, the design and setting and the outcomes of the  RESCUEicp trial [Randomised Evaluation of Surgery with Craniectomy for Uncontrolled Elevation of Intra-Cranial Pressure], of which he was the research fellow.
The clinical question of this trial was to evaluated if decompressive craniectomy could result in more favourable mortality and neurological outcomes at 6 months, compared with barbiturate coma management. It resulted in a Class I evidence for using last-tier decompressive craniectomy (DC) as a life-saving intervention for refractory raised ICP following TBI. At 6 months DC  was associated with lower mortality but higher rate of vegetative state and lower and upper severe disability; the moderate disability and the good recovery rates were similar in comparison with the barbiturate coma management group.
In the second part of the video Dr Kolias presents the RESCUE-ASDH trial [Randomised Evaluation of Surgery with Craniectomy for patients Undergoing Evacuation of Acute SubDural Haematoma] of which the recruitment is still on-going. In this case the aim is to compare the neurological outcomes and the effectiveness of adult head-injury patients undergoing evacuation of acute subdural haematoma after a decompressive craniectomy versus craniotomy.
