  • Larger chronic subdural haematomas, or those producing significant symptoms, are generally treated with surgical drainage, either via small holes in the skull (burr hole drainage) or by removing a small window of bone to release the blood (mini-craniotomy). (precisionspine.com.au)
  • In these cases the symptoms such as mild fever, headache, drowsiness and confusion can be seen, which are relieved by draining this subdural fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • If there is an associated localized mass effect that may explain the clinical symptoms, or concern for a potential chronic SDH that could rebleed, then an MRI, with or without neurologic consultation, may be useful. (wikipedia.org)
