Infratentorial Craniotomy

Survival: Infratentorial Craniotomy

2016 – 2020

The 30- and 180-day survival rates for infratentorial craniotomy were 100% and 96%, respectively, for 2020.

Inpatient Mortality: Infratentorial Craniotomy

2016 – 2020

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.

There have been only 3 deaths in patients undergoing infratentorial craniotomy at Cleveland Clinic in the past 5 years, which is below the expected number based on national averages. N = number of infratentorial craniotomies performed for brain tumor per year. In 2020 there were 0% inpatient deaths vs an expected mortality of 11.68%.

Average Length of Stay: Infratentorial Craniotomy

2016 – 2020

LOS = length of stay

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.

Average length of stay has remained lower than predicted during the past 5 years.

Karnofsky Performance Scale Status — Percent Change (N = 8)

2020

Performance status was stable or improved in 75% of patients undergoing infratentorial craniotomy. Functional status is measured by the Karnofsky Performance Scale, a widely used 11-point scale correlating to percentage values from 100% (no evidence of disease, no symptoms) to 0% (death). Change in status was defined as a change of ≥ 20 points.
