Subdural Meningioma - Epidural Hematoma - Demo #1 (CDr)


  1. In addition, a computer-aided search of MEDLINE was conducted using PubMed to obtain literature published between and September The search was performed using the keywords “spinal epidural hematoma” and was limited to articles discussing SEH in humans and in the English, French, Italian, German, or Spanish languages.
  2. An epidural hematoma (EDH) is found in approximately 3% of patients suffering from TBI. Nine percent of those in a coma have EDH. SDH is diagnosed when there is a collection of blood inside the skull, but also inside the covering of the brain called the Dura. The collection is therefore between the dura and the outer most brain tissue itself.
  3. Sep 22,  · CT imaging of the brain revealed an acute cm subdural hematoma over the right convexity and cm of midline shift to the left. The right lateral ventricle and third ventricle were effaced.
  4. Nov 30,  · CT of the head (Figure 1) revealed a 2 cm right hemispheric subdural hematoma which appeared predominantly chronic but demonstrated superimposed acute or subacute hemorrhage. There was also subfalcine herniation to the left. No acute parenchymal hematoma or depressed skull Author: DO Tracy M Bishop, Kareem S Elsayed, Kathleen E Kane.
  5. The subdural collection seen on MRI corresponded to a subdural hematoma with subacute characteristics (Fig. 2 (–)), complete resection of the tumor with coagulation of the dural implantation was performed (Simpson II resection). No alterations of the motor evoked potentials were detected during surgery in the electrophysiological.
  6. Figure 1: CT scans of subdural hematomas: The left image demonstrates a right-sided acute subdural hematoma with evidence of small hyperacute component (hypodense, red arrow). The right image demonstrates a left-sided acute subdural hemorrhage in the presence of a pre-existing chronic subdural hematoma (blue arrow).
  7. Jul 17,  · An epidural hematoma and a subdural hematoma, plus a subarachnoid hemorrhage with a temporal bone fracture with, fortunately, minimal midline shift. I had experienced what you learn about regarding an epidural hematoma in medical school: the "lucid interval." My neurosurgeon told me that I was less than 2 hours away from a coma or death.
  8. Subdural hematomas may cause an increase in the pressure inside the skull, which in turn can cause compression of and damage to delicate brain tissue. Acute subdural hematomas are often life-threatening. Chronic subdural hematomas have a better prognosis if properly managed. In contrast, epidural hematomas are usually caused by tears in arteries, resulting in a build-up of blood between Specialty: Neurosurgery.
