Chronic subdural hematoma

Surgery or mannitol treatment

Restricted access

✓ A controlled clinical trial was planned to compare the effect of mannitol treatment with surgical intervention in chronic subdural hematoma. It was discontinued after the first seven patients showed no response to mannitol therapy. We recommend that operative intervention be considered the treatment of choice.
