This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry about your brother
sometimes in the US, when there is severe brain swelling, a side of the skull of the brain is removed to allow swelling of teh brain without pressure.
this can help in the long term once the swelling comes down, the bone is placed back and the patient is given the best chance to recover
there are risks for infection with the skull removed
but pressure from swelling in the brain can injure neurons in the brain just like the brain injury
how did he injure his brain?
