Effects of a small acute subdural hematoma following traumatic brain injury on neuromonitoring, brain swelling and histology in pigs.

An acute subdural hematoma (ASDH) induces pathomechanisms which worsen outcome after traumatic brain injury, even after a small hemorrhage. Synergistic effects of a small ASDH on brain damage are poorly understood, and were studied here using neuromonitoring for 10 h in an injury model of controlled cortical impact (CCI) and ASDH. Pigs (n = 32) were… CONTINUE READING
