Extradural and subdural hematomas

Changing patterns and requirements of treatment in Australia

Restricted access

✓ The pattern of head injuries due to traffic accidents has changed markedly in Australia in the period since 1935. A review of autopsy cases of extradural and acute subdural hematomas shows a startling shift toward inoperable lesions. The author points out that accident prevention must now be considered the chief means of reversing man's trend toward self-destruction on the highway.
