Abstract

Background: Parasagittal meningioma is a common type of intracranial meningiomas. Surgical resection of such lesions can result in injury to superior sagittal sinus. In rare occasions, extended craniotomy might be required for uncontrollable hemorrhage from a lacerated venous wall. Objective: In order to avoid extended craniotomy, we attempted a surgical technique that would provide more sustained control over the lacerated venous sinus. Method: A 56 year old lady underwent surgical resection for parasagittal meningioma. The lateral wall of the superior sagittal sinus was preached while scraping the tumor capsule from the sinus wall. Owing to difficulty in controlling the bleeding site, a tack up falx-assisted tension suture was attempted with a mass of Gelfoam and Surgicel over the laceration. Results: Adequate control for the venous sinus laceration. Conclusion: The falx-assisted suturing technique is quick, easy to perform and efficient in maintaining a constant tamponade effect over the lacerated site. We highly recommend such technique prior to extending the craniotomy over an injured venous sinus.
