OBJECT Chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) recur in 7 to 18% of cases. The present study was conducted to determine whether serum or lesion concentrations of coagulofibrinolytic and angiogenic factors, which have been reported to be potential markers of CSDH development, might predict such recurrences.
