Morbidity and mortality in elderly patients undergoing evacuation of acute traumatic subdural hematoma

Panagiotis Kerezoudis, Anshit Goyal, Ross C. Puffer, Ian F. Parney, Fredric B. Meyer, and Mohamad Bydon

, geriatric patients experience worse mortality rates and functional outcomes than nonelderly TBI patients even though their head and overall injury burdens are seemingly less severe. 4 These patients also tend to have increased dependence postinjury given their decreased brain reserves. 5 Elderly patients are particularly prone to shearing of cortical bridging veins even in the setting of minor trauma, predisposing them to acute subdural hematomas (SDHs). The frequent use of antithrombotic agents in this population may further exacerbate the risk of complications and

Middle meningeal artery embolization as standalone treatment versus combined with surgical evacuation for chronic subdural hematomas: systematic review and meta-analysis

Huanwen Chen, Marco Colasurdo, and Peter T. Kan

C hronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) is a burgeoning condition worldwide, and its incidence is expected to increase along with the aging of the global population and increased use of anticoagulation medications. 1 , 2 While surgical drainage and/or evacuation of cSDHs may be beneficial for patients with large and symptomatic hematomas by relieving mass effect, recurrence rates with surgery alone have been historically high. 3 Recently, middle meningeal artery embolization (MMAE) has emerged as a novel and effective adjunctive treatment for cSDHs

Subdural Hematoma

Neurosurgical Forum: Letters to the Editor To The Editor Allan J. Drapkin , M.D. University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Neptune, New Jersey 169 170 Abstract Object. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of closed-system subdural drainage on repeated operation rates after burr hole evacuation of subacute and chronic subdural hematomas (SDHs). Methods. Five hundred consecutive operations for the treatment of SDH via burr holes were performed between January 1, 1996, and April 15

Also, the authors did not obtain computerized tomography (CT) scans during the drainage period and therefore the small drainage volumes in the cases of recurrent hematomas may have been due to a malfunction in the drainage system.

Acute Subdural Haematoma

John W. Chambers

usually ascribe the origin of acute subdural haematomas to laceration of the veins crossing to the longitudinal sinus. One author has the following to say: “Acute subdural hematomas usually result from extensive laceration of the veins crossing to the sinus [? longitudinal]. As it is impossible to learn which of these many veins is involved it is impossible to control them and surgical treatment of this condition is rarely successful.” 3 Rowbotham 7 mentions as points of origin of the bleeding: lacerated dural venous sinus, cortical vein with associated tearing of

Unoperated subdural hematomas

Long-term follow-up study by brain scan and electroencephalography

John Lusins, Robert Jaffe, and Morris B. Bender

I t has been demonstrated that many cases of chronic and subacute subdural hematoma can be successfully treated nonsurgically. 1–4, 7, 9, 13 With increasing recognition of this fact, there has been a corresponding increase in the need for nonsurgical methods for the diagnosis and evaluation of this condition. Clinical-laboratory correlations must be studied in each case so that prognosis and management can be rationally determined. Radionuclide scanning and electroencephalography (EEG) are methods which can provide valuable information without risk to the
