  • CONCLUSIONS: In an effort to reduce the incidence and severity of CMS in our population, our institution adopted surgical practices that minimize tissue trauma and mitigate postoperative edema. This included the use of a telovelar over a transvermian approach to obviate the need for vermian incision, avoidance of the CUSA, and minimization of heavy retraction during surgery. This was successful in reducing the incidence of CMS from 39% in our medulloblastoma patients to 10.8%. The development of CMS after posterior fossa surgery appears to be a "two-hit" phenomenon requiring a combination of existing predisposition, surgical injury, and postoperative exacerbation. Therefore, it is critical to identify the factors involved at each stage and investigate treatments to target them appropriately.
