Abstract

Background: Shaving before cranial surgery has been a common practice for many decades. Most of the studies were about the infection rates, but there is a few data about the effect of shaving on patient mood. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of not shaving when performing a craniotomy on the mood of the patients.
