Abstract

The Guidelines of the surgical management of severe head injury in adults, as evolved by the Neurotraumatology Group of the Italian Neurosurgery Society and the Italian Society for Anaesthesia, Analgesia, Reanimation and Intensive Care are presented and briefly discussed. Guidelines presented here are of a pragmatic nature, based on consensus and expert opinion. Aspects pertaining to specific indications to surgery and/or to the possibility of conservative management of different traumatic intracranial lesions are highlighted. The importance of surgery in preventing secondary insults to the traumatised brain is emphasised.
