Chronic subdural hematoma associated with type II and type III Galassi arachnoid cysts: illustrative cases

Bac Thanh Nguyen, Van Dinh Tran, Jehan Bista, and Trung Van Trinh

, hydrocephalus, and epileptic seizures. 2 The diagnosis of asymptomatic ACs has increased in recent years due to the extensive utilization of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques. 3 Head trauma is one of the most significant risk factors for the development of intracystic hemorrhage in ACs and subsequent subdural hematoma (SDH). However, fewer than 182 cases of spontaneous intracystic hemorrhage have been reported in the literature. 3 , 4 In this report, we present illustrative cases of three young patients who experienced spontaneous AC

Delayed neurological improvement in a patient with Duret hemorrhage secondary to an acute subdural hematoma: illustrative case

Youngkyung Jung, Yosef Ellenbogen, and Farhad Pirouzmand

secondary to an acute subdural hematoma (SDH), initially with poor neurological function and initially stationary postoperative neurological change followed by spontaneous improvement 3 weeks later. Illustrative Case We present the case of a 65-year-old male who was found to be unconscious by his family and brought to the hospital. The mechanism of injury was unclear. The patient was otherwise healthy and did not take any anticoagulants/antiplatelets. Noncontrast computed tomography (CT) of the head revealed an acute left-sided SDH with midline shift and uncal

Vacuum-assisted scalp repositioning: a novel temporizing approach to acute sinking skin flap syndrome. Illustrative cases

. Outcome Shortly after the sunken flap was adjusted, the patient experienced a tonic-clonic seizure. The external cast and wound vacuum were promptly removed. Repeat head imaging revealed a new 3-mm acute subdural hematoma without mass effect, with near-complete resolution of the previously observed paradoxical brain herniation ( Fig. 3 ). The patient was intubated for airway protection and transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU) for monitoring, including long-term electroencephalography (EEG). FIG. 3 Case 2.
