This study considered the effectiveness of Korean medicine for the treatment of eyelid edema post craniotomy.

The patient was diagnosed with Taeumin-one of the four constitution types in Korean medicine-and treated with herbal medicines: Cheongsimyeunja-tang, Chungpyesagan-tang, and Hwangryunhaedok-tang pharmacoacupuncture treatment. The severity of eyelid edema was assessed using Kara and Gokalan’s scale, daily imaging of the patient’s eyelids, and the ratio of the length of the left eye to that of the right.

Following treatment, the Kara and Gokalan score decreased from 3 to 0. The changes in the ratios were 29% and 50%, respectively. The visual field defect due to edema in the left eye was also repaired.

This study suggests that Korean medical treatment could be an effective option for treating eyelid edema following craniotomy.
Key words: eyelid edema, craniotomy, aneurysm clipping, pharmacoacupunture, Korean medicine
