Abstract

Minimally invasive procedures (either diagnostic or therapeutic, neurosurgical or multidisciplinary) play a major role in the management of patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Minimalism is the backbone of multimodality monitoring, which plays such an important role in preventing secondary cerebral insults and neurological decline (1-5). Such surgical techniques are also used in respiratory and nutritional management of patients with severe head injury who need long-term rehabilitation (6).
