The authors present a series of more than 200 surgical procedures for chronic subdural hematoma in a 5-year-period. Clinical presentation and neurosurgical treatment were regarded with a special focus on the surgical technique. Between March 2003 and July 2008, 193 patients (113 male and 80 female, mean age 72.5 yrs [range 26–97 yrs]) suffering from chronic subdural hematoma were retrospectively analyzed. One-hundred-fifty-one craniotomies and 42 burr holes were performed. Forty-two craniotomy… Expand
Single Burr Hole Craniostomy in surgical treatment of chronic subdural hematoma (Outcome and Complications)
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that Single Burr Hole Craniostomy is safe, simple and effective method for surgical management of CSDH with lower recurrence rate and lower morbidity and mortality. Expand
Chronic subdural hematoma treated by small or large craniotomy with membranectomy as the initial treatment.
TLDR
Among the cases of chronic subdural hematoma initially requiring craniotomy, the large craniotomies with extended membranectomy technique reduced the reoperation rate, compared to that of the small crANIotomy with partial membran surgery technique. Expand
Burr Hole Drainage versus Small Craniotomy of Chronic Subdural Hematomas
TLDR
Burr hole drainage would be sufficient to evacuate chronic subdural hematomas with lower recurrence rate, but small craniotomy was also needed in some cases such as hematoma has solid portion or multiple septum. Expand
Burr Hole Washout versus Craniotomy for Chronic Subdural Hematoma: Patient Outcome and Cost Analysis
TLDR
Based on this retrospective study, burr hole washout is superior for both patients’ clinical and financial outcome; however, prospective long-term multicenter clinical studies are required to verify these findings. Expand
Single Parietal Burr-hole Craniostomy with Irrigation and Drainage for Unilateral Chronic Subdural Hematoma in Young Adults <40 Years: A Rationale behind the Procedure
TLDR
SBHC with irrigation and drainage has excellent result for unilateral CSDH in young adults compared to other methods of drainage and should be considered treatment of choice unless contraindicated. Expand
Organized Chronic Subdural Hematomas Treated by Large Craniotomy with Extended Membranectomy as the Initial Treatment

TLDR
Large craniotomy and extended membrane excision for OSDH still carry a high rate of mortality and morbidity in elderly patients. Expand
Primary Enlarged Craniotomy in Organized Chronic Subdural Hematomas
TLDR
In select cases, based on the MRI appearance, primary enlarged craniotomy seems to be the treatment of choice for achieving a complete recovery and a reduced recurrence rate in OCSH. Expand
Radiological Features and Post-Operative Drainage Amount Independently Predict Recurrence of Chronic Subdural Hematoma after Burr-hole Craniostomy
Background: Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a common neurologic disease in elderly. It is not always a benign condition because high recurrence rate had been reported. Independent risk factorsExpand
Burr-Hole Craniostomy Versus Open Craniotomy for Treatment of Combined Chronic and Subacute Subdural Haemorrhage in Patients Above 90 Years Old
TLDR
In spite of the high incidence of combined acute and subacute incidence of subdural haemorrhage, burr hole craniostomy still offers better outcome for those patients with higher safe margin. Expand
Craniotomy for Treatment of Chronic Subdural Hematoma.
TLDR
Prior studies are summarized as well as rates of mortality, morbidity, reaccumulation requiring repeat operation, and clinical outcomes of chronic subdural hematomas. Expand

Chronic subdural hematoma: comparison of two surgical techniques. Preliminary results of a prospective randomized study.
TLDR
Preliminary results indicate TDC and BHC as at least equally effective, however TDC favors faster regression of residual subdural effusion, is a faster procedure, and seems to be associated with fewer recurrences. Expand
Irrigation vs. closed drainage in the treatment of chronic subdural hematoma
TLDR
It is believed that theBurr-hole craniostomy-irrigation technique is a reliable and effective method compared to burr- hole craniOSTomy-closed system drainage in the treatment of chronic subdural hematoma. Expand
Treatment of chronic subdural hematoma by burr-hole craniostomy in adults: influence of some factors on postoperative recurrence
TLDR
It is important to identify factors leading to a high or a low PR rate in the treatment of CSDHs because this may help to select appropriate surgical procedures and postoperative management to treat this condition efficiently. Expand
Surgical treatment of chronic subdural hematoma in 500 consecutive cases: clinical characteristics, surgical outcome, complications, and recurrence rate.
TLDR
Old age, pre-existing cerebral infarction, and persistence of subdural air after surgery were significantly correlated with poor brain re-expansion (p < 0.001), which will further improve the surgical outcome for patients with CSDH. Expand
A comparative study of the treatment of chronic subdural hematoma--burr hole drainage versus burr hole irrigation.
TLDR
For treatment of chronic subdural hematoma, postoperative hospitalization was shorter and the recurrence was less frequent with drainage than with irrigation. Expand
Chronic subdural haematoma: surgical treatment and outcome in 1000 cases
TLDR
A retrospective study of the records of 1000 patients harbouring chronic subdural haematoma treated with burr-hole craniotomy with closed-system drainage found poor prognosis was related to patient's age (>70) and clinical grade on admission (grades 0-2 versus grades 3-4). Expand
THE ROLE OF POSTOPERATIVE PATIENT POSTURE IN THE RECURRENCE OF TRAUMATIC CHRONIC SUBDURAL HEMATOMA AFTER BURR‐HOLE SURGERY
TLDR
It is not recommended that elderly patients assume an upright posture soon after burr-hole surgery to prevent postoperative atelectasis and dementia, as these might significantly increase the risk of CSDH recurrence. Expand
Early post-operative seizures after burr-hole drainage for chronic subdural hematoma: correlation with brain CT findings
TLDR
The post-operative seizure rate appeared high in the group with mixed-density type lesions on CT, and in those with left unilateral CSDH, and the use of prophylactic anticonvulsants for patients with Mixed-density lesions on pre-operative CT is suggested. Expand
[A study of acute subdural hematoma developing into hematoma with capsule formation].
TLDR
It was surmised that ASDH patients with the following characteristics have a high risk of progression to CSDH during the subacute and chronic phases when conservative therapy is administered during the acute phase of the lesion. Expand
Outcome of 2 different types of operative techniques practiced for chronic subdural hematoma in Malaysia: an analysis.
TLDR
A study looking into the outcome of TCSH operated with and without irrigation, followed by drainage, to guide the surgeons in Malaysia as to what best could be done for these cases found no significant difference between these 2 operative techniques. Expand
