Infratentorial Craniotomy: Survival

Both the 30- and 180-day survival rates for infratentorial craniotomy were 100% (for the first 6 months of 2017).

Infratentorial Craniotomy: Inpatient Mortality

ᵃThe 3M™ All Patient Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (APR-DRG) Classification System is used for adjusting data for severity of illness and risk of mortality. solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Health-Information-Systems/HIS/Products-and-Services/Products-List-A-Z/APR-DRG-Software.

There have been only 3 inpatient deaths in those undergoing infratentorial craniotomy for brain tumor at Cleveland Clinic in the past 5 years, which is below the expected number based on national normative data. N = number of infratentorial craniotomies performed for brain tumor per year.

Mean LOS has remained lower than predicted over the past 5 years.

Infratentorial Craniotomy: Karnofsky Performance Scale (N = 32)

2017

Functional status is measured by the Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS), a widely used 11-point scale correlating to percentage values from 100% (no evidence of disease, no symptoms) to 0% (death). Performance status, as measured by the Karnofsky Performance Scale (KPS), was stable in 97% of patients undergoing infratentorial craniotomy. Change in KPS status was defined as a change of ≥ 20 points.

Infratentorial Craniotomy: Survival by Tumor Type – Glioma

The 30- and 180-day survival rates for infratentorial craniotomy for gliomas, meningioma, metastases, and Schwannoma were both 100% (for the first 6 months of 2017).
