INTRODUCTION: Chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) is a common pathology encountered in neurosurgical practice, especially in elderly patients, who frequently require antithrombotic agents. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of antithrombotic agents on recurrence rates and clinical outcomes in patients operated for cSDH. METHODS: A cohort of patients operated for cSDH at one center during a 5 years period was analyzed retrospectively. Presenting symptoms, coagulation testing, history of antithrombotic agents and comorbidities were obtained from the patient charts...

Hearing of eyeball movements has been reported in superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD), but not hearing of eyelid movements. Our main objective was to report the hearing of eyeball and/or eyelid movements in unilateral SSCD. Our secondary objective was to access its specificity to SSCD and discuss the underlying mechanism. Six patients with SSCD who could hear their eyeball and/or eyelid movements were retrospectively reviewed. With the aim of comparisons, eight patients with an enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA), who share the same mechanism of an abnormal third window, were questioned on their ability to hear their eyeball and/or eyelid movements...

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is characterized by an "old" encapsulated collection of blood and blood breakdown products between the brain and its outermost covering (the dura). Recognized risk factors for development of CSDH are head injury, old age and using anticoagulation medication, but its underlying pathophysiological processes are still unclear. It is assumed that a complex local process of interrelated mechanisms including inflammation, neomembrane formation, angiogenesis and fibrinolysis could be related to its development and propagation...

BACKGROUND: The clinical decision whether and when to resume antithrombotics in patients with chronic subdural hematomas (CSDH) postoperatively is limited by a lack of quality evidence exploring this topic. Our study aims to assess the available evidence of patient complication outcomes, specifically hemorrhagic and thromboembolic events, following the resumption or non-resumption of antithrombotic agents postoperatively in CSDH patients already on these agents before CSDH. METHODS: We followed recommended PRISMA guidelines for systematic reviews...

OBJECTIVES: Chronic subdural hematoma is a commonly encountered disease in neurosurgic practice, whereas its increasing prevalence is compatible with the ageing population. Recommendations concerning postoperative thrombosis prophylaxis after burr-hole drainage of chronic subdural hematoma are lacking. The aim of this study was to analyze the correlation between recurrence of chronic subdural hematoma and postoperative application of thrombosis prophylaxis. DESIGN: Retrospective, consecutive sample of patients undergoing burr-hole drainage for chronic subdural hematoma over 3 years...

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSH) is an accumulation of blood within the intracranial subdural space. It is associated with minor traumatic events and affects mostly the elderly. CSH can be effectively treated surgically with good outcomes, although the recurrence rate is high. Epileptic seizures are one of the major complications associated with CSH, either in the pre or postoperative period. The incidence rate of new onset seizures after CSH diagnosis ranges between 3% and 23%. However, the benefit of using prophylactic antiepileptic drugs in these patients is controversial with significant variations in clinical practice...

The human brain loses its volume and its function during aging. The solid part of the brain within the intracranial space, the brain parenchyma, decreases in volume with age; while the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) volume increases. With progressive loss of brain parenchymal volume (BPV), CSF may shift from cerebral ventricles to the subdural space, forming subdural effusion (SDE), whose role in the brain aging process remains unclear. We hypothesize that damages associated with ventriculomegaly can be lessened after formation of SDE...

BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common intracranial hematoma. The number of patients who undergo anticoagulant therapy including a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) is expected to increase. Recently, idarucizumab, the antidote for dabigatran, which is a DOAC, has been developed. We successfully treated CSDH with dabigatran using emergency burr hole surgery and idarucizumab. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 79-year-old Japanese man severely hit his head and visited the emergency room (ER)...

An 81-year-old man presented with gait disturbance. Two months previously, he suffered from hepatocellular carcinoma and transarterial chemoembolization was performed. A head computed tomography(CT)scan revealed bilateral chronic subdural hematomas. The patient's gait disturbance was improved after achievement of bilateral burr hole drainage. A head CT two months after treatment revealed no recurrence of the hematomas. However, head CT images obtained four months after treatment revealed an abnormal mass in the right parietal region attached to the internal surface of the skull...

BACKGROUND: Chronic spinal subdural hematomas are extremely rare with only 28 cases reported in the literature. Nevertheless, they should be considered among the differential diagnoses for spinal intradural/extramedullary lesions. CASE REPORT: A 65-year-old male presented with progressive back pain and right S1 radiculopathy. Magnetic resonance imaging scan revealed a right-sided posterolateral intradural/extramedullary lesion at the L5-S1 level. It was hyperintense on T1 and hypointense on T2-weighted images; on the short TI inversion recovery sequence it was hyperintense...

BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) is one of the most common conditions encountered in neurosurgical practice. Recurrence, observed in 5-30% of patients, is a major clinical problem. The temperature of the irrigation fluid used during evacuation of the hematoma might theoretically influence recurrence rates since irrigation fluid at body temperature (37 (o)C) may beneficially influence coagulation and cSDH solubility when compared to irrigation fluid at room temperature. Should no difference in recurrence rates be observed when comparing irrigation-fluid temperatures, there is no need for warmed fluids during surgery...
