Sažetak
During the 4-year period (1991-1994) there were 127 consecutive patients with missile braine wound treated at the Division of Neurosurgery. They sustained brain injury in the region of east Slavonia, Baranya and nort Bosnia, and were admitted mostly during the homeland defensive war in Croatia (1991-1992). Analysing the wounded, we divided hem in two groups: "succumbed" (59 wounded) and "survivors" (68 wounded). We applied "less radical type of surgery", i.e. the patients were never re.operated only because of the retained single bone fragment. However, a retained cluster of bone fragments chould be reoperated. The higher percentage of retained bone fragments (76,8%) is the result of precise visualization on the postoperative computed tomography (CT) scan. The last few cases have convinced us that the problem of the retained fragments could be solved by using an intraoperative ultrasonography. An intracranial (i.c.) infection (meningitis, abscess) occurred in 10 patients (10%), most among the patients who, besides the retained fragments, had cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak on the dehiscenced scalp wound. These cases should be reoperated soon after the CSF leak is visible on the dehiscenced wound. The overall mortality rate of 46,4% can be explained since our hospital was located close to the front-line, and some of severely wounded reached our hospital just in time to die. Excluding moribunds and those who died on the operating table (operated immediately after the admission), the mortality was 31,7%.
