What is meant by subdural collection left temporoparietal region with mass effect. Acute on chronic sdh?

What is meant by subdural collection left temporoparietal region with mass effect. Acute on chronic sdh?

These are usually the result of a traumatic brain injury. The acute on chronic refers to the differences in age of clot. The fact that there is mass effect suggests that this has reached sufficient size to "compress" the brain. Surgery is the treatment. ...Read more

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
