Usually most of the neurosurgical emergencies have to be operated within 24 hours to 72 hours for better outcome in patient point of view. Depending upon the pattern of neurosurgical conditions, if we categorise these emergency surgeries, taking into consideration the priority of performing the operations the mortality and morbidity will reduce. This will help in better usage of operating room time (OR Time), hospital resources and at the same time not affecting the elective surgical operations.
