Double-crescent sign as a predictor of chronic subdural hematoma recurrence following burr-hole surgery.

J Neurosurg 2019 Jan 4:1-7. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

1Department of Neurosurgery, Faculty of Medicine, Fukuoka University Hospital and School of Medicine, Fukuoka University, Fukuoka.

OBJECTIVESubdural hygroma has been reported as a causative factor in the development of a chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) following a head trauma and/or neurosurgical procedure. In some CSDH cases, the presence of a 2-layered space delineated by the same or similar density of CSF surrounded by a superficial, residual hematoma is seen on CT imaging after evacuation of the hematoma. The aims of the present study were to test the hypothesis that the double-crescent sign (DCS), a unique imaging finding described here, is associated with the postoperative recurrence of CSDH, and to investigate other factors that are related to CSDH recurrence.

International practice variation in postoperative imaging of chronic subdural hematoma patients.

J Neurosurg 2018 Dec 21:1-8. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

1Computational Neuroscience Outcomes Center (CNOC), Department of Neurosurgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts.

OBJECTIVEThe value of CT scanning after burr hole surgery in chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) patients is unclear, and practice differs between countries. At the Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) in Boston, Massachusetts, neurosurgeons frequently order routine postoperative CT scans, while the University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU) in the Netherlands does not have this policy. The aim of this study was to compare the use of postoperative CT scans in CSDH patients between these hospitals and to evaluate whether there are differences in clinical outcomes. Read More

Spontaneous Acute Subdural Hematoma Associated with Arachnoid Cyst and Intra-cystic Hemorrhage.

Cureus 2018 Sep 28;10(9):e3383. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Neurosurgery, Advocate Christ Medical Center, Oak Lawn, USA.

Arachnoid cysts (ACs) are congenital, extra-axial lesions containing fluid similar to the composition of cerebrospinal fluid. Usually found incidentally, these lesions are observed with serial imaging to document their growth patterns and stability, and are then followed conservatively until clinical symptoms develop. Surgical options for symptomatic arachnoid cysts include cyst aspiration, cyst evacuation with fenestration into the subarachnoid space, and shunt procedures including cysto-peritoneal and cysto-ventricular shunts.

Pediatric Central Nervous System Imaging of Nonaccidental Trauma: Beyond Subdural Hematomas.

Radiographics 2019 Jan-Feb;39(1):213-228. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

From the Department of Radiological Sciences, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, PO Box 26901, Garrison Tower, Suite 4G4250, Oklahoma City, OK 73126 (D.G., B.O.C., S.J., A.M.A.); and Department of Radiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, Calif (H.M.D.).

Infants and children under 2 years of age are at greatest risk for devastating neurologic complications following nonaccidental trauma. While a subdural hematoma (SDH) is the most common finding and is often enough to raise suspicion for abuse, no single injury is pathognomonic for abusive head trauma (AHT). Rather, the combination of imaging and physical findings and the clinical presentation help confirm the diagnosis of AHT. Read More

The Diffuse and Severe Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Being Hard to Distinguish to Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage.

J Craniofac Surg 2019 Jan;30(1):196-199

Department of Neurosurgery, Tobu Hospital, Yokohama, Japan.

Background: In primary intracerebral hemorrhage, several studies showed that contrast extravasation (CEV) is reported to be an indicator of delayed hematoma expansion, emergent hematoma removal and poor prognosis. On the contrary in head trauma, few researches validated the effectiveness of CEV because of other influences such as subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), contusion or brain swelling. The authors experienced a patient showing diffuse SAH caused by traumatic mechanism with acute subdural hematoma (ASDH). Read More
