Phantom-based evaluation of near-infrared intracranial hematoma detector performance.

J Biomed Opt 2019 Apr;24(4):1-10

U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Silver Spring, Maryla, United States.

Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is emerging as a rapid, low-cost approach for point-of-care triage of hematomas resulting from traumatic brain injury. However, there remains a lack of standardized test methods for benchtop performance assessment of these devices and incomplete understanding of relevant light-tissue interactions. We propose a phantom-based test method for systems operating near the 800-nm oxy-/deoxy-hemoglobin isosbestic point and implement it to evaluate a clinical system. Read More

Clinical Features of Patients With Spontaneous Intracranial Hypotension Complicated With Bilateral Subdural Fluid Collections.

Headache 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Neurosurgery, Guro Hospital, Korea University College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: 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 difficult to consider SIH as an underlying cause. Whether SIH is underlying or not among the patients presenting bilateral subdural fluid collections (hygromas or CSDHs) is clinically important because the treatment strategy should be different between them.

Development of bilateral dural arteriovenous fistulae following pial synangiosis for moyamoya syndrome: case report.

J Neurosurg Pediatr 2019 Apr 12:1-5. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Departments of1Neurosurgery and.

Moyamoya syndrome predisposes patients to ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke due to progressive narrowing of intracranial vessels with subsequent small-vessel collateralization. Dural arteriovenous fistulae (DAVFs) are most commonly noted after venous sinus or cortical vein thrombosis and are believed to be primarily due to venous hypertension and elevated sinus pressures, although there is no known association with moyamoya syndrome, or with surgical treatment for moyamoya disease (MMD). The authors present the case of a 14-year-old girl with Down syndrome treated using pial synangiosis for MMD who subsequently was noted to have bilateral DAVFs. Read More

Department of Neurosurgery, University Neurosurgical Center Holland (UNCH), Leiden University Medical Center & Haaglanden Medical Center & Haga Teaching Hospital, Leiden/The Hague, The Netherlands.

Background: The decision whether to operate or not in patients with a traumatic acute subdural hematoma (t-ASDH) can, in many cases, be a neurosurgical dilemma. There is a general conception that operating on severe cases leads to the survival of severely disabled patients and is associated with relatively high medical costs. There is however little information on the quality of life of patients after operation for t-ASDH, let alone on the cost-effectiveness. Read More

Repeat Subdural Hematoma After Uncomplicated Lumbar Drain Discontinuation: A Case Report.

A A Pract 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

From the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Care, University of California Irvine, Orange, California.

Lumbar drains are commonly placed to monitor spinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressures and drain CSF to augment spinal cord perfusion. Excessive CSF drainage or persistent leakage through the dural puncture site can lead to cerebral hypotension and creation of an intracranial subdural hematoma. Anesthesia providers need to be aware of the risk of subdural hematoma development after major thoracoabdominal surgery where placement and subsequent removal of a lumbar drain have occurred.

Isolated subdural hematoma secondary to Dural arteriovenous fistula: a case report and literature review.

BMC Neurol 2019 Mar 21;19(1):43. Epub 2019 Mar 21.

Department of Neurosurgery, The First Hospital of Jilin University, 71 Xinmin Avenue, Changchun, Jilin, 130021, China.

Background: Dural arteriovenous fistula (DAVF) is an uncommon subtype among the intracranial arteriovenous malformations, which is characterized by pathological anastomoses between meningeal arteries and dural venous sinuses, meningeal veins, or cortical veins. While intracerebral hemorrhage accounts for most of the hemorrhagic cases in patients with DAVF, isolated subdural hematoma (SDH) is rarely reported.

Case Presentation: A 45-year-old man was admitted for a progressively worsening headache over 2 weeks. Read More

Surgical treatment of progressive cauda equina compression caused by spontaneous spinal subdural hematoma: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Mar;98(12):e14598

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital, School of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou.

Rationale: Spontaneous spinal subdural hematoma (SSDH) without an underlying pathology is a very rare condition. The treatment protocol for SSDH is early diagnosis and treatment before irreversible damage to neural tissue. However, there is no agreement on the etiopathogenesis, as well as the need for surgery to treat spontaneous SSDH. Read More

Factors associated with mortality in acute subdural hematoma: Is decompressive craniectomy effective?

Ulus Travma Acil Cerrahi Derg 2019 Mar;25(2):147-153

Department of Neurosurgery, University of Health Sciences, Şişli Hamidiye Etfal Training and Research Hospital, İstanbul-Turkey.

Background: Despite rapid diagnosis and aggressive neurosurgical intervention, acute subdural hematoma (ASDH) is a severe type of head injury that can result in high morbidity and mortality. Although surgical procedures, such as craniotomy and decompressive craniectomy (DC), can be effective, the preferred approach for treating an ASDH remains controversial. The aim of this report was to evaluate factors associated with mortality in patients with ASDH and determinants of outcome in those with ASDH who underwent DC. Read More

Mortality and Functional Outcome in Surgically Evacuated Acute Subdural Hematoma in Elderly Patients.

World Neurosurg 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Department of Neurosurgery, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.

Background: Significant morbidity and mortality is associated with surgical evacuation of acute subdural hematomas (ASDHs) in the elderly population. The literature remains mixed on risk factors associated with poor outcomes, specifically preoperative antithrombotic usage and postoperative seizures.

Methods: Between January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2017, we retrospectively identified 62 patients ≥65 years of age who underwent a craniotomy for evacuation of an ASDH, with the primary outcome being Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) score at discharge and 3- and 6-month follow-up. Read More

Rapid Discharge After Interfacility Transfer for Mild Traumatic Intracranial Hemorrhage: Frequency and Associated Factors.

West J Emerg Med 2019 Mar 11;20(2):307-315. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Northwestern University, Department of Emergency Medicine, Chicago, Illinois.

Introduction: Traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (TIH), brain injury with radiographic hemorrhage, is a common emergency department (ED) presentation, and encompasses a wide range of clinical syndromes. Patients with moderate and severe neurotrauma (Glasgow Coma Scale [GCS] < 13) with intracranial hemorrhage require care at a trauma center with neurosurgical capabilities. However, many patients with mild traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (mTIH), defined as radiographic bleeding and GCS ≥ 13, do not require operative intervention or intensive care unit monitoring, but are still routinely transferred to tertiary care centers.

Removal of a minimal amount of subdural hematoma is effective and sufficient for term neonates with severe symptomatic spontaneous parenchymal hemorrhage.

Childs Nerv Syst 2019 Mar 16. Epub 2019 Mar 16.

Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Ibaraki Children's Hospital, 3-3-1 Futabadai, Mito, Ibaraki, 311-4145, Japan.

Introduction: Spontaneous parenchymal hemorrhage of term neonates is usually asymptomatic and does not require surgical intervention. However, there is no consensus on the management of cases with severe life-threatening symptoms, including repeated apnea, respiratory failure with severe cyanosis, severe bradycardia, or uncontrolled seizures.

Cases: Our medical records of term neonates with intracranial hemorrhage who underwent surgical intervention were retrospectively reviewed. Read More
