Acute epidural hematomas (AEDH) are generally managed with rapid surgical hematoma evacuation and bleeding control. However, the surgical outcome of patients with serious brain edema is poor. This study reviewed the clinical outcome for AEDH patients and evaluated the efficacy of the DC, especially in patients with associated massive brain swelling. Eighty(More)
OBJECTIVE This report presents 12 consecutively managed patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) associated with acute subdural hematoma (ASDH) who underwent decompressive craniectomy (DC) with special attention to their clinical characteristics and surgical outcomes. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed medical charts, radiologic findings,(More)
Acute subdural hematoma (ASDH) patients presenting in a severe condition tend to have poor outcomes due to the significant brain edema required to maintain the ICP at less than 20-25 mmHg. This study compared the surgical outcomes of 16 critically ill patients with ASDH who underwent hematoma irrigation with trephination therapy (HITT) based on their(More)
