What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

What is left parietal hematoma? Is parietal hematoma and subdural hematoma same?

Different: A hematoma is like a bruise or collection of blood from a trauma. In parietal hematoma this is in the parietal lobe of the brain, so it is in the brain tissue itself. A subdural hematoma is just under the dura mater one of the coverings of the brain so it is up close to the skull. ...Read more

Hematoma- blood coll: Hematoma is collection of blood somewhere in the body...anywhere in the body....it's called a hematoma. Parietal tells us the location (Parietal lobe of the brain) usually due to high blood pressure while Subdural hematoma means collection of blood below the level of the DURAL cover of the covering of the brain called the meninges...often times traumatic cause but also often can be spontaneous. ...Read more

Can you fall and get yourself a epidural hematoma or subdural hematoma?

Can you fall and get yourself a epidural hematoma or subdural hematoma?

Yes: Acceleration/deceleration injuries (like falling or a car accident) are typically associated with subdural hematomas. On impact, the brain shifts within the skull causing bridging veins to rupture leading to a slow accumulation of blood within the meningeal layers. ...Read more

Blood clot: A subdural hematoma is a blood clot that has formed on top of the brain and underneath the covering of the brain. It is usually due to a traumatic event or if the patient's blood is being thinned. It can be nonsurgical or surgical depending on how large it is and what the patient's neurological status is. ...Read more

What exactly is subdural hematoma?

Intracranial blood: A subdural hematoma is a blood clot that forms between the brain and the fibrous membrane covering the brain (subdural space). It is usually a result of trauma with the stretching and tearing of a vein in the subdural space as the brain deforms during an acceleration, deceleration situation.. ...Read more

What are techniques used to detect subdural hematoma?

What are techniques used to detect subdural hematoma?

CT scan of the head: Subdural hematoma is the development of a blood clot between the dura (lining of the brain) and the brain. These frequently can occur after trauma when a small vessel bleeds. Clinical history and examination can lead one to suspect a subdural hematoma (sdh). Definitive diagnosis is with a ct scan or an MRI where the blood and its location can actually be visualized. ...Read more

Can you tell me about subdural hematoma?

SDH: A subdural hematoma typically occurs from bridging cortical veins being torn causing blood to accumulate on the surface of the brain under the dural covering of the brain. Trauma is the most common cause. In the elderly, even relatively minor head trauma can cause a sdh. Surgery is often used to evacuate the hematoma. ...Read more

What exactly is chronic subdural hematoma?

What exactly is chronic subdural hematoma?

Blood around brain: There are three layers of tissue that surround the brain, known collectively as the "meninges." the outermost layer is the dura mater, the middle layer the arachnoid mater, and the layer closest to the brain the pia mater. When veins that go between these layers rupture - often because of trauma - blood can start to pool between the dura mater and arachnoid mater causing a subdural hematoma. ...Read more

What can I do if I had a subdural hematoma 3 years ago?

Forget it: Acute subdural is a serious event but resolves over time. Chronic subdural is possible but unlikely if you are otherwise healthy. Headaches and seizures may be long term sequelae, but are easy to manage. Follow up scans should be done. Periodic neurological follow up would be appropriate. ...Read more

I had a spontaneous subdural hematoma resulting in a successful crani and evacuation of the hematoma. How common is it to have a reocurrance?

Depends on cause: Trauma is the more common cause for subdurals. Bleeding disorders are another common cause. Anticoagulant use may lead to subdurals. In rare cases no cause can be found. Recurrence depends on the cause and the awareness of risks. ...Read more

Will a subdural hematoma kill me?

It can: If left untreated. Small subdural can be left alone, particularly if they do not cause pressure on the brain or cause symptoms such as a headache. Larger subdurals need to be drained because of pressure on the brain. They should also be monitored to make sure they are not groing. Prevention of the primary cause should be undertaken too. ...Read more

How can I prevent a subdural hematoma from reoccuring?

Stop hitting head: A subdural hematoma is usually a result of trauma. There is rupture of blood vessels just beneath the dura that causes a blood clot. This can dissolve to a fluid collection with a membrane. Usually this resolves and is of no significance. Rare cases rebleed or even grow, particularly if there is repeated trauma. ...Read more
