does anyone know a good technique for preventing/reducing brain 
herniation in rats?

i currently remove roughly a 4mm by 3mm window of parietal skull and then 
peel back the dura. prior to skull removal i do a cm (cisterna magna) 
punch. lately i seemed to be having more rapid herniation than usual.

any suggestions?

thanks in advance.
