After severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI) associated with uncontrollable high intracranial pressure (ICP), still today the main challenge for neurosurgeons remains to identify who may obtain benefit from decompressive craniectomy (DC) and which factors after DC influence the prognosis of these patients. The aim of this paper was to identify the pre and post-operative determinants of outcome after DC.
