Evaluation of Intraoperative and Post-Operative Benefits of Supraorbital Keyhole Approach for Anterior Circulation Aneurysm Surgery
Objective: To evaluate the intraoperative and post-operative benefits of the supraorbital keyhole approach for anterior circulation aneurysm surgery.
Study Design: Cross-sectional analytical study
Place and Duration of Study: Neurosurgery Department, Combined Military Hospital (CMH), Rawalpindi Pakistan, from Mar 2021 to Apr 2022.
Methodology: Forty patients came for anterior circulation aneurysm surgery during the above said period in the hospital who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria of the study. Ambulation time against all patients was 24 hours. Patients were treated with clipping. After surgery, patients were followed till the resolution of complications.
Results: Of 40 cases, 21(52.5%) were males, and 19(47.5%) were females. The average age of the patients was 51.97±9.73 years. The aneurysm location of patients was not associated with the gender of the patient, with a p-value of 0.115. Similarly, the average age of the patient was not significantly different for the patients' aneurysms location with a p-value of 0.106. Satisfaction appearance was claimed in all 40(100%) cases after surgery. The research study showed no complications in 18(45%) patients out of 40 after treatment, with a p-value of 0.041.
Conclusion: Supraorbital keyhole approach for anterior circulation aneurysm surgery is better regarding intraoperative tissue trauma and post-operative cosmetic outcome. The patient and all post-operative complications will be cured within six months after surgery.
