One of the common brain problems is the alterations being found in the cerebrospinal fluid. This can cause infection as well as brain swelling, which is known as hydrocephalus. Patients of such disease are found to be with an enlarged head. In such case, the brain surgery is essential in which the surgeons drain out the fluid which is causing the infection in the brain.
The brain surgery is done after giving general anesthesia to the patient. The hair on the patient’s scalp is shaved off to perform the surgery. A hole is drilled in the scalp so that the neurosurgeon is able to reach the affected part of the brain. Once the surgery is over, the skin is again put to normal by stitching it up whereas the excess blood is drained outside the brain.
Aneurysm surgery is done on the patient, with weak blood vessels connecting to the brain or the blood vessels are affected with infection.
