Perioperative prophylactic middle meningeal artery embolization for chronic subdural hematoma: a series of 44 cases.

J Neurosurg 2021 May 21:1-9. Epub 2021 May 21.

Objective: Chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) is a common and challenging pathology to treat due to both the historically high recurrence rate following surgical evacuation and the medical comorbidities inherent in the aging patient population that it primarily affects. Middle meningeal artery (MMA) embolization has shown promise in the treatment of cSDHs, most convincingly to avoid surgical evacuation in relatively asymptomatic patients. Symptomatic patients requiring surgical evacuation may also benefit from perioperative MMA embolization to prevent cSDH recurrence. Read More

Thrombosis is not a marker of bridging vein rupture in infants with alleged abusive head trauma.

Acta Paediatr 2021 May 8. Epub 2021 May 8.

Department of Clinical Medicine K1, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway.

Aim: Thrombosis of bridging veins has been suggested to be a marker of bridging vein rupture, and thus AHT, in infants with subdural haematoma.

Methods: This is a non-systematic review based on Pubmed search, secondary reference tracking and authors' own article collections.

Results: Radiological studies asserting that imaging signs of cortical vein thrombosis were indicative of traumatic bridging vein rupture were unreliable as they lacked pathological verification of either thrombosis or rupture, and paid little regard to medical conditions other than trauma.

Spontaneous and recurrent subdural haematoma in a patient with May-Hegglin anomaly.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 May 7;14(5). Epub 2021 May 7.

Department of Neurosurgery, The Walton Centre NHS Foundation Trust, Liverpool, UK.

Both acute and chronic subdural haematomas typically occur following trauma. Non-traumatic causes are less common, but aetiologies include arteriovenous malformation, intracranial aneurysm rupture, tumour-associated haemorrhage and coagulopathies. May-Hegglin anomaly is an example of a coagulopathy, which is caused by a mutation in the gene encoding non-muscle myosin heavy chain 9 (MYH9) and therefore falls into a group of diseases referred to as MYH9-related diseases (MYH9-RD).
