Infantile acute subdural hematoma

Clinical analysis of 26 cases

Nobuhiko Aoki and Hideaki Masuzawa

A clear definition for “infantile acute subdural hematoma” (IASDH) has not been published. Some reports regard the term as covering any case of acute subdural hematoma in infants, 5 including those with skull fracture and cerebral contusion. Because of the biophysiological characteristic in infants, we have limited the term to describe an acute subdural hematoma due to apparently minor head trauma without loss of consciousness that is not associated with cerebral contusion in infants; this may possibly be caused by rupture of a bridging vein. 16 This

Middle meningeal artery embolization for refractory chronic subdural hematoma

Case report

Shinya Mandai, Masaru Sakurai, and Yuzo Matsumoto

tomography scans revealed bilateral CSHs with a moderate leftward midline shift ( Fig. 1 ). The hematoma on the right side was large and required treatment. The hematoma on the left side was very small; it later disappeared spontaneously without treatment. Fig. 1. Head CT scans obtained at hospital admission demonstrating a homogeneous high-density subdural hematoma and a moderate leftward midline shift. Operation and Postoperative Course Local anesthesia was induced in the patient. After the patient was administered a transfusion of plasma and platelets, a right

Physiopathogenesis of subdural hematomas

Part 2: Inhibition of growth of experimental hematomas with dexamethasone

David Glover and Enrique L. Labadie

I n Part 1 of this study 8 we described the development of a subdural hematoma model in the subcutaneous tissues of rats. The lesions were induced by the autologous hemolyzed blood or autologous fresh whole blood, but not by the use of injected plasma clotted in situ . The clinical behavior and histological features of this animal model were found to be virtually identical to those seen in human subdural hematomas. 8 Subsequent biochemical analysis of their liquid contents showed remarkable similarities to human samples previously reported. 6–8 During our

Subdural hematomas of the posterior fossa in normal-weight newborns

Report of two cases

José Hernansanz, Francisco Muñoz, Daniel Rodríguez, Concepción Soler, and Carlos Principe

T wo normal-weight full-term newborn infants with subdural hematoma of the posterior fossa were treated surgically, with excellent results. A review of the literature disclosed 11 other cases published in the last 48 years since the first report cited by Munro 6 in 1934, and published by Coblentz 3 in 1940 ( Table 1 ).

Rectal dural metastasis masquerading as chronic subdural hematoma: illustrative case

patients presenting with subdural hematoma have been even more infrequent, with a 4% incidence in a study among patients with subdural hematoma and active cancer at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. In colorectal carcinoma, regional lymph node involvement is the most common form of spread and usually precedes distant metastasis or the development of carcinomatosis. The most common site of distant metastasis is the liver. Rectal carcinoma spreading to the brain is rare, with an incidence ranging from just 1% to 3%. 2 There have been several reports of

Chronic Subdural Hematomas

Neurosurgical Forum: Letters to the Editor To The Editor Nobusuke Tsuzuki , M.D. National Defense Medical College Saitama, Japan 1251 1253 Abstract Object. Thrombomodulin is a thrombin receptor on vascular endothelial cells that is highly expressed when these cells are injured, and it has anticoagulating activity. The authors investigated thrombomodulin expression to clarify why chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) continue to grow slowly, like a tumor, and are liquefied. Methods. Burr hole craniotomy and

Subdural Hematoma Recurrence

Neurosurgical Forum: Letters to the Editor To The Editor Shigeki Kubo , M.D. Hiroyuki Nakata , M.D. Takarazuka Municipal Hospital Hyogo, Japan 1023 1025 Abstract Object. This study was conducted to determine the best position for the subdural drainage catheter to achieve a low recurrence rate after burr-hole irrigation and closed-system drainage of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH). Methods. The authors studied 63 patients with CSDH in whom the drainage catheter tip was randomly placed and

Intracerebral hematoma following evacuation of chronic subdural hematomas

Report of two cases

Domenico d'Avella, Francesco De Blasi, Antonino Rotilio, Vincenzo Pensabene, and Nicola Pandolfo

A lthough the potential for cure for chronic subdural hematomas (SDH's) is very high, unexpected neurological deterioration may occasionally complicate the postoperative course. Failure of the brain to reexpand, tension pneumocephalus, and recurrence of the hematoma are well recognized complications which may be responsible for a patient's poor progress. Intracerebral hemorrhages occurring after the rapid removal of a chronic SDH have been reported recently as a rare but nearly uniformly devastating postoperative occurrence. 7 This report documents two
