I never heard of this.  I know they put us in Halo's, but I never heard of them causing problems.  Are you sure this is what caused it?

I worked in Neurosurgery for 3 years. I'm a RN, as well as a Chiarian. Sounds like they did have your head held in place in the OR.  This sometimes results with a few cuts into the scalp. If they continue to bleed where it wont stop, if there's any increase in swelling, or fowl drainage/ pus coming from them you need to f/u with your NS.
