Hi, I would like to understand what exactly happens in the decompression surgery and have a few things I could not figure out from online sources. Maybe somebody in this forum knows about these:
1) when the craniectomy is done, where do the rectus capitis posterior muscles attach post-surgery - isnt' their attachment to skull pretty much where the bone will be taken away?
2) Can someone explain why C1 or even C2 bones should be cut, when the objective is to create more space _above_ the foramen magnum line for the cerebellum to fit?
Thanks if anyone can offer some explanations to this!
