Figure 1: Schematic (a) showing the initial line of incision in a frontotemporal craniotomy for an aneurysm (blue line) and the posterior extension (solid black line) that can be used when a salvage decompressive craniotomy is considered with other possible trajectories (dotted black lines). The vessels on which the flaps can be based are also shown and named while (b) shows the initial bone removed (shaded in black) and what can be further removed (shaded in red) during salvage decompressive craniotomy by this technique
