Antiplatelet therapy is common and complicates the operative management of subdural hematomas (SDH). The risk of reoperation inferred by antiplatelet medication and the ability of platelet transfusion to reduce hemorrhagic complications in patients presenting with antiplatelet associated SDHs is poorly defined.

Isodense and hypodense acute subdural hematomas have been reported in the literature in anemic patients. The purpose of this study is to see if there is a statistically significant difference between ...
Traumatic acute subdural hematomas (ASDH) displayed the highest mortality rate of intracranial hematomas. The aim of the current study was to identify predictive factors of poor prognosis among operat...
Subdural hygromas are often found bilaterally in spontaneous intracranial hypotension (SIH). They frequently progress to chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs), and if the hematomas are formed, it is diff...
Although generally 'benign', long-term survival (LTS) after chronic subdural haematoma (CSDH) is poor in a significant sub-group. Such dichotomy has been compared to fractured-neck-of-femur. However, ...
To investigate clinical characteristics and outcomes of chronic subdural hematomas (CSDHs) in different age ranges.
Chronic subdural hematomas are a frequent neurosurgical pathology in the elderly. Gold standard is surgical evacuation of these hematomas. Physiopathology of chronic subdural hematoma invo...
In a multi-national population-based cohort, the investigators want to compare the clinical course and clinical outcome of elderly patients (≥70 y/o) compared with younger patients (< 70...
This is a single center single arm study of 50 patients to 1) determine the safety of tranexamic acid in the chronic subdural hematoma population following surgical drainage of chronic sub...
There are numerous reported ways to treat chronic subdural hematomas (CSDH) and practice is still differing considerably between departments. Except for a recent randomized controlled tria...
The goal of this study is to determine the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values of the a portable near-infrared-based device (portable NIR-based device), t...
Reduction of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure characterized clinically by HEADACHE which is maximal in an upright posture and occasionally by an abducens nerve palsy (see ABDUCENS NERVE DISEASES), neck stiffness, hearing loss (see DEAFNESS); NAUSEA; and other symptoms. This condition may be spontaneous or secondary to SPINAL PUNCTURE; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; DEHYDRATION; UREMIA; trauma (see also CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA); and other processes. Chronic hypotension may be associated with subdural hematomas (see HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL) or hygromas. (From Semin Neurol 1996 Mar;16(1):5-10; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp637-8)
Accumulation of blood in the SUBDURAL SPACE between the DURA MATER and the arachnoidal layer of the MENINGES. This condition primarily occurs over the surface of a CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, but may develop in the spinal canal (HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL, SPINAL). Subdural hematoma can be classified as the acute or the chronic form, with immediate or delayed symptom onset, respectively. Symptoms may include loss of consciousness, severe HEADACHE, and deteriorating mental status.
Variation in health status arising from different causal factors to which each birth cohort in a population is exposed as environment and society change.
Longitudinal study of a nationally representative sample of adolescents in grades 7-12 in the United States during the 1994-95 school year. The Add Health cohort has been followed into young adulthood. (from http://www.cpc.unc.edu/projects/addhealth accessed 08/2012)
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
Pharmacy is the science and technique of preparing as well as dispensing drugs and medicines. It is a health profession that links health sciences with chemical sciences and aims to ensure the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs. The scope of...
