• 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.

  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
