The del- icate and performed in an effort to save the child from life-long idiocy. He is a victim of brain." The boy is Aid en Vorrath, son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Vor- rath. Ke will be kept under constant care for six months during which time the two sections of his skull will be held apart by metal wedges. Not until next November will surgeons be able to determine whether the operation has been a success. Dr. H. H. Schoenfeld. noted brain specialist, performed the operation before a group of well known surgeons. They agreed that success in this case might open the way to treat- ment of the condition which is found in a high percentage of cases in institu- tions. The decision to operate came after a long study by Dr. D. D. V. Stuart staff neurologist. He determined that the child's in- telligence was normal for its age. but that he suffered oc- casional convulsions because of the skull's pressure on the. brain. Employing s. new technique, Dr. Schcenfeld split the skull into halves on a line extending from points in front of both. ears over the top of the head. He then inserted metal wedges to keep the opening 11-2 centi- meters (slightly more than 1-2- inch) wide. The membrane en- closing the brain was cut to al- low it to expand to normal size. Dr. Schoenfeld explained the bone would not grow over the: opening, but that hard scalp tissue gradually would fill up the space. It will resemble tha original structure of the head and cause no harm to the child, he said.
