Feyce Peralta, Sarah Devroe
Unintentional dural puncture followed by postdural puncture headache is a well-known complication following neuraxial labor analgesia. Risk factors for the development of postdural puncture headache may be related to the patient's history and characteristics, the neuraxial technique, and obstetrical events. The diagnosis of postdural puncture headache is usually made depending on the clinical presentation (orthostatic headache after a neuraxial procedure). Occasionally, neuroimaging and neurological consultation are warranted...

Intracranial subdural hematoma developing following spinal anesthesia is a rare but serious complication. We describe a case of subdural hematoma developing following spinal anesthesia and diagnosed late. A female patient receiving spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery 45 days prior to arrival at the emergency department presented to our hospital with non-severe headache persisting for 45 days after discharge. Computerized tomography (CT) of the brain performed due to long-term persisting headache resistant to medical treatment and a history of spinal intervention revealed a hypodense chronic subdural hematoma in the left frontoparietal area and a shift from left to right in midline structures...

BACKGROUND: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common neurological pathology, especially in older patients. The actual "gold standard" of treatment is surgical evacuation, with various techniques used across neurosurgical teams. Over the years, there has been growing evidence that inflammatory processes play a major role in the pathogenesis of CSDH. In that context, the use of corticosteroids has been proposed alone or as an adjuvant treatment to surgery. However, this practice remains very empirical and there is a need for high-quality-of-evidence studies to clarify the role of corticosteroids in the management of CSDH...

OBJECTIVE: Recurrent chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is not rare. Some studies have demonstrated the role of dexamethasone in the medical management of chronic subdural hematoma. However, no systematic study in the treatment of recurrent CSDH has been published. The aim of our study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of dexamethasone in patients with recurrent CSDH. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed medical records of consecutive patients from July 2010 to September 2014...

An 86-year-old woman was admitted to the intensive care unit with a chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) and rapid onset of worsening neurological symptoms. She was taken to the operating room for a mini-craniotomy for evacuation of the CSDH including excision of the dura and CSDH membrane. Postoperatively, a subdural evacuation port system (SEPS) was integrated into the craniotomy site and left in place rather than a traditional subdural catheter drain to evacuate the subdural space postoperatively. The patient had a good recovery and improvement of symptoms after evacuation and remained clinically well after the SEPS was removed...

OBJECTIVE: Gender differences in various diseases have recently been recognized as an important factor in the approach to more efficient preventive and therapeutic medicine. We clarified gender differences in the clinical characteristics of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) by comparing men and women with CSDH as there is a well-known male predominance in the prevalence of CSDH. METHODS: Clinical factors and computed tomography (CT) findings were retrospectively investigated in 490 consecutive patients admitted to our hospital between 2006 and 2015 who were diagnosed with CSDH...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The safety of amateur and professional boxing is a contentious issue. We hypothesised that advanced magnetic resonance imaging and neuropsychological testing could provide evidence of acute and early brain injury in amateur boxers. METHODS: We recruited 30 participants from a university amateur boxing club in a prospective cohort study. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and neuropsychological testing was performed at three time points: prior to starting training; within 48 h following a first major competition to detect acute brain injury; and one year follow-up...

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) with brain herniation signs is rarely seen in the emergent department. As such, there are few cumulative data to analyze such cases. In this study, we evaluated the clinical features, risk factors, and rates of completion with impending brain herniation on arrival in a cohort study. We analyzed 492 consecutive patients with CSDH between January 2010 and October 2015. First, we analyzed the clinical factors and compared them between patients with or without brain herniation signs on admission...

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a rare clinical entity that occurs in a small subset of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) cases and is surgically cured by pulmonary endarterectomy. We report a case of a 44-year-old female with a complex history of CTEPH treated by thromboendarterectomy who presented with a subdural hematoma while on warfarin. The patient eventually recovered by a multidisciplinary approach, use of inferior vena caval filter, and effective anticoagulation management.

OBJECTIVE: Initial management strategies of chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) are controversial, and range from bedside twist-drill or burr hole drainage, to craniotomy with membranectomy (CWM). We aim to (1) perform a meta-analysis of the available data on the outcomes of CWM for treatment of cSDH in published English-language literature, and (2) evaluate collective outcomes of CWM with respect to morbidity, mortality, and recurrence rates. METHODS: A search of English-language literature performed in PubMed, Ovid, and Cochrane databases using keywords ("subdural hematoma" or "chronic subdural hematoma") and ("membrane" or "membranectomy") from inception to December 2016 was conducted...

Self-inflicted penetrating injuries have been very rarely described in the medical literature. We describe a middle-aged woman, who had driven a long knife inside her skull with the help of a brick. She had done this to get relief from chronic headache, which was troubling her for 10 years. Patient was hemodynamically stable and had Glassgow Coma scale score of 15. She was immediately operated to remove the knife and evacuate the acute subdural hematoma. Patient made a steady postoperative recovery. Psychiatric and neurological evaluation in the postoperative period revealed features of mixed anxiety and depressive disorder with migraine, for which she was started on treatment...

Among the intracranial hematomas, chronic subdural hematomas (CSDH) are the most benign with a mortality rate of 0.5-4.0%. The elderly and alcoholics are commonly affected by CSDH. Even though high percentage of CSDH patients improves after the evacuation, there are some unexpected potential complications altering the postoperative course with neurological deterioration. Poor outcome in postoperative period is due to complications like failure of brain to re-expand, recurrence of hematoma and tension pneumocephalus...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to elucidate the effects of arachnoid plasty (ARP) on chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) occurrence following clipping surgery. METHODS: In total 217 patients (ARP, n = 97; non-ARP, n = 120) who had undergone unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA) surgical clipping via the pterional approach were retrospectively assessed. Predisposing factors for CSDH development following the surgery were investigated. Thickness and volume of the subdural fluid collection (SDFC) were measured to determine whether ARP affects postoperative SDFC...

We experienced an ossified subdural hematoma (OSDH), which is an extremely rare form of chronic subdural hematoma (SDH), in the dominant hemisphere of a 35-year-old woman. She presented to our outpatient clinic with a complaint of a headache; she had previously experienced a head injury while she was pregnant. We performed surgery with extreme caution because the lesion was attached to the surrounding tissue. Since an OSDH is an extremely rare form of chronic SDH, neurosurgeons might not experienced them during their daily practice...
