Füllung des Kopfes nach Amputation / Filling of the Head after Amputation

Mit was wird das verbleibende Loch im Kopfinneren eines Menschen bei der Amputation einer Gehirnhälfte gefüllt?

What ist filled into the remaining whole in a human head, when one hemisphere is amputated?


Only reference I can find is that normally cerebrospinal fluid fills the space. However, the source is not verified and I’m not a doctor. But interesting question, was a surprise to me that this surgery works. More in Wikipedia:


Now I asked my sister, she answered something like that:
> It should be filled with "liquor", like @teller said: "liquor cerebrospinalis"


I'll ask my sister this weekend :) She's learning stuff like that.


Going offtopic here (Ahmet, please delete this later)

Just wanted to say that your own answer "I’ll ask my sister this weekend" is sort of meta-discussion and should be a "comment", not an "answer" - with regards to the discussion it ads 0 value to the person who asked the question and is more of a digital litter that doesn’t raise the quality. If it was treated as comment and hidden by default then it would be ok chatter around the main content.


yeah thats right, I know, like yours is ;) But therefore I am developing the commenting system right now.
Thank you for your opinion
