During some neurology procedure, the skull has to be opened. In such cases, the cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) leaks from the opening, thus creating a brain shift. This brain shift can induce large displacement and needs to be taken into account by neurologists.
For pre-operative planning, the mechanical simulation can be used to assist clinicians. This work has been done during by Alexandre Bilger’s PhD thesis.
