OBJECTIVE We evaluated long-term clinical outcomes and postoperative physiological findings in acutely comatose patients with nonmissile surgical intraparenchymal temporal lobe hemorrhages and abnormal pupillary widening who received early preoperative high-dose mannitol (HDM) versus conventional dose mannitol treatment in the emergency room. METHODS One hundred forty-one adult patients with traumatic, nonmissile, acute, intraparenchymal temporal lobe hemorrhages associated with early… CONTINUE READING
