Medical anti-shock trousers were first described in 1903 by surgeon G.W. Crile as he tried to augment blood pressure with a “pneumatic rubber suit” during neurosurgical procedures.

The unilateral suboccipital approach was popularized by Woolsey (1903) and with great contributions by Fedor Krause (1905).

After several refinements and modifications through different dedicated neurosurgeons (Fish, House and Seiffert , Dandy's suboccipital approach (1917) with an ipsilateral suboccipital flap evolved to the retrosigmoid transmeatal approach.
