A more systemic management of subdural hematoma with the aid of CT scan

Surg Neurol. 1981 Feb;15(2):158-60. doi: 10.1016/0090-3019(81)90041-0.


Computerized tomography (CT) allows an easy evaluation of the current methods of treatment of chronic subdural hematoma. In a prospective study of 20 consecutive patients, burr-hole evacuation or conservative management monitored by CT proved effective invariably. All patients had returned to normal when discharged from hospital.
