• neurological
  • Neurological and neurosurgical critical care team need to stabilize the patient by reversing any underlying coagulopathy states in order to prevent further hematoma expansion.In the event of brain herniation and presumed ICP elevation and CPP compromise, step-wise ICP management should be instituted promptly.Seizure prophylaxis treatment is reasonable.

  • cerebrospinal fluid
  • A subdural hygroma is a collection of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), without blood, located under the dural membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • Superficial hemosiderosis of the central nervous system is a disease of the brain resulting from chronic iron deposition in neuronal tissues associated with cerebrospinal fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • The most commonly described underlying cause of superficial siderosis is chronic bleeding into the subarachnoid space of the brain, which releases erythrocytes, or blood cells, into the cerebrospinal fluid. (wikipedia.org)
  • hygroma
  • One of the common causes of subdural hygroma is a sudden decrease in pressure as a result of placing a ventricular shunt. (wikipedia.org)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) should be done to differentiate a chronic SDH from a subdural hygroma, when clinically warranted. (wikipedia.org)
  • small veins
  • The bleeding that leads to a chronic SDH occurs in the small veins located between the brain's surface and dura. (aarp.org)
  • benign
  • The seriousness of Kernohan's notch varies depending on the primary problem causing it, which may range from benign brain tumors to advanced subdural hematoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1986, Vanast was the first author to describe the new daily-persistent headache (NDPH) as a benign form of chronic daily headache (CDH). (wikipedia.org)
  • Shaken Baby Syn
  • Several case reports also associated headbanging with subdural hematoma, sometimes fatal, and mediastinal emphysema similar to Shaken Baby Syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • Subdural hemorrhage is a classic finding in shaken baby syndrome, in which similar shearing forces classically cause intra- and pre-retinal hemorrhages. (wikipedia.org)
  • shrinks
  • As the brain shrinks with age, the subdural space enlarges and the veins that traverse the space must travel over a wider distance, making them more vulnerable to tears. (wikipedia.org)
  • Antiplatelet
  • Findings on preoperative MRI, preoperative thickness of the drained hematoma, and the influence of antiplatelet or anticoagulant drugs were considered and evaluated in univariate and multivariate analyses. (operativeneurosurgery.com)
  • veins
  • Shrinking weakens veins, so even a minor head injury may cause a chronic SDH. (aarp.org)
  • Subdural hematomas are most often caused by head injury, when rapidly changing velocities within the skull may stretch and tear small bridging veins. (wikipedia.org)
  • head trauma
  • These hematomas develop after minor head trauma and increase in size over weeks. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • 0.001), gender ( p = 0.144), age ( p = 0.394), history of head trauma ( p = 0.445), volume of hematoma ( p = 0.068), hematoma location ( p = 0.281), and application of urokinase ( p = 0.545) were shown non-significantly associated with these two minimally invasive approaches. (springer.com)
  • preoperative
  • Because it was difficult to diagnose organized hematoma solely on the basis of preoperative imaging studies, preoperatively predicting the risk of seizures is considered challenging. (clinmedjournals.org)
