Yangshuo Wang, Jingru Zhou, Cungang Fan, Dongliang Wang, Feng Jiao, Bo Liu, Qingjun Zhang
Antithrombotic agents (AT), including anticoagulants and antiplatelets, are risk factors of chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs). However, the use of AT has not been clearly associated with postoperative recurrence (PR) in the literature before. Furthermore, the association between the resumption of AT and postoperative complications also requests research. Databases including Pubmed, Embase and Cochrane were searched for patients presenting with CSDH on anticoagulant or antiplatelet medication. Ten studies were included to analyze the association between the use of AT and PR: The meta-analysis showed that the use of AT, both anticoagulants (OR=2...

We previously demonstrated that the inflammatory cytokine interleukin-6 (IL-6) activates the Janus kinase (JAK)-signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) signaling pathway in fibroblasts within the outer membranes of chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs), and the activation of this pathway may induce CSDH outer membrane growth. The inhibitory system for this signal transduction pathway is unknown. CSDH fluids were obtained from ten patients during trepanation surgery as the case group, and CSF samples were obtained from seven patients suffering from subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) on day 1 as the control group...

OBJECTIVE Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common type of intracranial hemorrhage in elderly patients. Many studies have suggested various factors that may be associated with the recurrence of CSDH. However, the results are inconsistent. The purpose of this study was to determine the associations among patient factors, recurrence, and clinical outcomes of CSDH after bur hole surgery performed during an 11-year period at twin hospitals. METHODS Kaplan-Meier analysis was performed to evaluate the risk factors for CSDH recurrence...

OBJECTIVE: Although a high incidence of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) following traumatic subdural hygroma (SDG) has been reported, no study has evaluated risk factors for the development of CSDH. Therefore, we analyzed the risk factors contributing to formation of CSDH in patients with traumatic SDG. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients admitted to Hallym University Hospital with traumatic head injury from January 2004 through December 2013. A total of 45 patients with these injuries in which traumatic SDG developed during the follow-up period were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous Intracerebral hemorrhage is a rare and challenging condition to treat, especially in haemophiliacs. With their innate predilection to bleed following trivial trauma, surgical management of such cases have been individualised and no treatment protocols exist. Often they are managed with craniotomy and evacuation under cover of AHF. DISCUSSION: Here we discuss the nuances, clinical and treatment dilemma that one faces while treating a patient, diagnosed with haemophilia, with spontaneous subdural haematoma...

OBJECTIVE: The use of antithrombotic agents such as anticoagulants and antiplatelet agents is widespread, and the opportunities to treat patients with chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) under antithrombotic therapy are growing. However, whether antithrombotic therapy contributes to postoperative complications and recurrences of CSDH and how these agents should be managed in the surgical treatment of CSDH remains unclear. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 150 consecutive patients with CSDH who underwent neurosurgical interventions at Kyushu Rosai Hospital from 2011 to 2015 and followed them for more than 3 months...

BACKGROUND: A 72-year-old man with bilateral chronic subdural hematomas was admitted to our department and treated using a YL-1 type hematoma aspiration needle. The treatment was complicated by hemorrhage of the basal ganglia and brainstem. This patient had no history of hypertension. We evaluated the relevant literature to analyze the causes of cerebral hemorrhage in similar patients. CONCLUSIONS: This case report illustrates that the stability of the intracranial pressure should be closely monitored during the surgical treatment of chronic subdural hematomas, and large fluctuations in the cerebral perfusion pressure should be avoided during the operation...

Infants with minor abusive injuries are at risk for more serious abusive injury, including abusive head trauma (AHT). Our study objective was to determine if children with AHT had prior opportunities to detect abuse and to describe the opportunities. All AHT cases from 7/1/2009 to 12/31/2011 at four tertiary care children's hospitals were included. A prior opportunity was defined as prior evaluation by either a medical or child protective services (CPS) professional when the symptoms and/or referral could be consistent with abuse but the diagnosis was not made and/or an alternate explanation was given and accepted...

OBJECTIVE: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common form of intracranial hemorrhage with a substantial recurrence rate. Atorvastatin may reduce CSDH via its anti-inflammatory and pro-angiogenesis effects, but its effectiveness for preventing recurrent CSDH has never been explored. We hypothesized that atorvastatin is effective in reducing recurrence of CSDH after surgery and identified determining factors predictive of hematoma recurrence. METHODS: A prospective study was conducted in 168 surgical cases of CSDH...

Chronic subdural hematoma (SDH) is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in elderly. Patients taking antiplatelets and/or anticoagulants have increased risk of bleeding during the perioperative period. Precise dose blood products and specific surgical technique have been effective in preventing hemorrhagic complications perioperatively. From Jan 2010 to Dec 2012, 25 patients who were on antiplatelets and/or oral anticoagulants underwent emergency surgery for chronic or acute on chronic SDH. Patients were divided into three groups: group I-patients on antiplatelets, group II-patients on oral anticoagulants, and group III-patients taking both...

BACKGROUND: Apixaban, a factor-Xa-inhibitor, is one of the non-vitamin-K-antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) which are increasingly used in atrial fibrillation (AF). In real life even patients with contraindications to vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) receive NOAC because NOAC are considered as "safer" than VKAs. CASE DESCRIPTION: In a 61-years-old man with hypertension, heart failure and paroxysmal AF apixaban was started. Despite advices from his physicians, he continued alcohol abuse and suffered from recurrent falls...

OBJECTIVE Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common form of intracranial hemorrhage with a recurrence rate of 9.2%-26.5% after bur hole surgery. Occasionally patients with bilateral CSDH undergo unilateral surgery because the contralateral hematoma is deemed to be asymptomatic, and in some of these patients the contralateral hematoma may subsequently enlarge, requiring additional surgery. The authors investigated the factors related to the growth of these hematomas. METHODS Ninety-three patients with bilateral CSDH who underwent unilateral bur hole surgery at Aizu Chuo Hospital were included in a retrospective analysis...

A possible misconception among radiologists is that chronic subdural hemorrhage should show some degree of blooming on T2*-gradient recalled-echo or susceptibility-weighted sequences such as SWI and susceptibility-weighted angiography, which is not necessarily true. We present 5 cases of chronic subdural hemorrhages in infants, demonstrating intensity near or greater than that of CSF with variable amounts of hemosiderin staining along the neomembranes. We review the physiology and MR imaging physics behind the appearance of a chronic subdural hemorrhage, highlighting that the absence of a BBB can allow hemosiderin to be completely removed from the subdural compartment...

Hemorrhage sometimes occurs within arachnoid cysts, however, organized arachnoid cysts has not been reported. We speculate the previous invasive stress or some kind of infection may have triggered the formation of the organized membrane, which may have formed via a similar mechanism to that for organized chronic subdural hematomas.

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) has been recognized as a benign disease, but its clinical outcome is not well documented. This study aims to expand the knowledge base regarding the outcome of CSDH. We retrospectively reviewed clinical characteristics of CSDH operated in the Kobe City Medical Center General Hospital between June 2005 and June 2012. Variants included age at onset, sex, laterality, presence of headache, consciousness level, and risk factors for hemorrhage such as malignancy or intake of anticoagulants...
