chronical subdural heamatomas

Shawn Agius, Sohail Ansari, Antoine Zrinzo
We have reviewed all acute neurosurgical admissions between December 2007 and December 2009. Hundred and nine (46.6%) of our admissions were head injuries. A subdural haematoma(SDH) was found in 51.4%(56) of the head injuries. Of these, 50/56 presented with a Glasgow Coma Scale(GCS) of 14 to 15, 41.1% (23) of these SDH needed surgery.

Preoperative CT criteria and postoperative CT controls of the course were put in relation to the clinical development of the findings obtained with different surgical techniques. The comparison of borehole trepanation (37 haematomas) and large craniotomy (37 heamatomas) shows advantages with respect to the retrogression of the haematomas (CT), the postoperative clinical course and the complications in favour of the patients subjected to borehole trepanation...
