App Store Description

CRANIOTOMY is an application intended to describe the most frequent cranial approaches on a step-by-step basis. Literature shows a large number of descriptions on how to proceed in each type of craniotomy. We describe the various surgical approaches in neurosurgery on a practical and simple way so as to facilitate understanding and learning.
It is important to keep in mind the need to analyze each procedure carefully and to adjust the surgical approach to provide the best for the patient. Images and photos use used to help.

The app Craniotomy, aims to help in the learning of this complex subject on medicine. The content was developed by a team of neurosurgeons that work at Santa Casa de Belo Horizonte - MG - Brazil, members of Neurosurgery Blog and Prof. Sebastião Gusmão da UFMG. The authors: Dr. Lucas Alverne Freitas de Albuquerque, Dr. Júlio Leonardo Barbosa Pereira, Dr. Mauro Cruz Machado Borgo, Prof. Dr. Gervásio Teles Cardoso de Carvalho, Prof Dr. Sebastião Gusmão e Prof. Dr. Atos Alves de Sousa.
