Granulations form between the skull and the dura, and on the outer aspect lifting up the pericranium.
The pericranium and dura mater adhered firmly to the scull; in many places there was an opake whiteness of the tunica arachnoidea.
My experiments on this subject agree with his, excepting in this, that I always found the pericranium extremely sensible.
The pericranium adhered but slightly to the scull, nor was the dura mater firmly attached.
The latter sometimes extend to the pericranium, and in case of recovery leave permanent cicatrices.
But if the Tumour adheres very close to the pericranium, it is most expedient not to meddle with it at all.
Upon dividing the integuments of the head, the pericranium was found scarcely to adhere to the scull.
The hypospathister was an elevator for separating the pericranium from the calvarium.
A most fortunate thought arrived in my pericranium just at that instant.
Blood extravasated under the pericranium is limited by the attachments of this membrane at the sutures.
