Spinal subdural hematoma from a ventral dural puncture after percutaneous vertebroplasty: illustrative case

Hao-Chien Yang, Heng-Wei Liu, and Chien-Min Lin

Percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) is a common and efficient procedure for treating vertebral compression fractures. Although often perceived as a minimally invasive low-risk procedure, postoperative complications caused by cement leakages are not uncommon and can lead to either a mild local leakage mass or serious systemic embolic events. 1–5 Spinal subdural hematoma (sSDH) after PVP is a rare complication. 6–8 Clinically, sSDHs can manifest as various nonspecific spinal symptoms and signs, which makes diagnosis difficult. Because no pathognomonic signs of

Cervical spinal cord compression from subdural hematoma caused by traumatic nerve root avulsion: illustrative case

the cervical spine demonstrated what appeared to be a dorsal epidural hematoma spanning from C3 to C6 causing critical spinal canal stenosis ( Fig. 2 ). He was promptly taken to surgery for evacuation of this hematoma. He underwent C3–5 laminectomies, but no epidural blood was visualized after decompression. Moreover, the thecal sac appeared to be distended, particularly on the right side, with areas of dark coloration seen under the dura. Intraoperative ultrasound was used to visualize a subdural hematoma underlying the decompressed levels. FIG. 2 Cervical

, 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

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

convexity and tentorium. Surgery was not indicated then because of no neurological deficit. However, he had persistent left-sided headache. Ten days later, sudden unbearable headache, nausea, vomiting, and gradual decrease level of consciousness were noted. His Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score was E2V3M5. CT revealed an increased amount of hyperdense subdural hematoma. He received emergency craniotomy for hematoma evacuation. Postoperatively, he regained clear consciousness but still complained of frequent headache. Repeat CT on postoperative day 2 showed residual subdural

Infantile traumatic pericallosal aneurysm: illustrative case

Nonaccidental trauma (NAT) is a leading cause of infantile injury and death in the United States. 1 , 2 An estimated 2.07 children per 100,000 died in the United States as a result of abuse or neglect in 2010. 3 Over 50% of all fatalities resulting from child abuse occur in those under the age of 12 months. 4 Abusive head trauma is most commonly characterized by skull fracture, subdural hematoma (SDH), cerebral edema, and retinal hemorrhages. 1 , 5 Traumatic cerebral aneurysms (TCAs) are a rare sequela of abusive head trauma in infants. 6 , 7 The rate

Tangential cranial gunshot wound in an infant in historical context: illustrative case

shooting. A 9-month-old male child had suffered a gunshot wound to the head. In the emergency department there was no eye opening or vocalization and the left pupil was dilated. There was a sagittally oriented 8 cm laceration just to the right of the midline with a bridge of intact scalp at the midpoint, associated with grooving of the underlying calvaria but no penetration ( Fig. 1 ). After immediate intubation, an expedited computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a large, hyperacute, left convexity subdural hematoma with midline shift ( Fig. 2A and B ). There was no
