Figure 2: Operative pictures showing (a) the posterior extension arising from the initial skin incision marked and infiltrated after painting and draping before reoperation, (b) the replaced bone flap has been removed and more bone has been exposed that will be subsequently removed as part of the decompressive craniotomy, (c) bulge at the initial durotomy site with further dural exposure following decompressive craniotomy, (d) after stellate durotomy has been done, (e) a comparison of the initial old bone flap with further newly removed bone (in two pieces) to show how much additional decompression has been achieved, (f) careful closure at the tri-junction to prevent CSF leak and (g) length of the incision shown prior to beginning the skin closure
