    Remote Hemorrhage after Burr Hole Drainage of Chronic Subdural Hematoma.
    Korean J Neurotrauma 2017 Oct 31;13(2):144-148. Epub 2017 Oct 31.
    Department of Neurosurgery, Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital, Pusan National University School of Medicine, Yangsan, Korea.
    Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) and symptomatic subdural hygroma are common diseases that require neurosurgical management. Burr hole trephination is the most popular surgical treatment for CSDH and subdural hygroma because of a low recurrence rate and low morbidity compared with craniotomy with membranectomy, and twist-drill craniotomy. Many reports suggest that placing a catheter in the subdural space for drainage can further reduce the rate of recurrence; however, complications associated with this type of drainage include acute subdural hematoma, cortical injury, and infection.

    The Relationship Between Hematoma and Pachymeninges in an Interdural Hematoma: Diagnosis and Surgical Strategy.
    World Neurosurg 2017 Nov 16. Epub 2017 Nov 16.
    Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, Saint Paul's Hospital, Taoyuan, Taiwan.
    Background: The exact location of a hematoma in relation to the pachymeninges contributes to typical radiographic presentations. However, because of the complexity of hematoma evolution and neomembrane formation, an unexpected intraoperative finding can lead to a change of surgical strategy. In addition, the concentration of hemoglobin and its degradation products, the integrity of red blood cells, and the infiltration of fibroblasts, polymorphonuclear neutrophils, and macrophages are factors that affect the imaging characteristics on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging as the hematoma ages.
