Described below: A subarachnoid hemorrhage is an arterial bleed usually from the rupture of a saccular aneurysm, though it can be traumatic. Blood accumulates over the surface of the brain and a fine covering called the pia-arachnoid. A subdural hemorrhage is a venous bleed from bridging veins . It occurs between the inner lining of the skull and the tough covering of the brain called dura. Both a dangerous. ...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
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: If you are referring to outcomes, subdural hematomas generally have a worse outcome. This may because these tend to be in older patients and are associated with a rotational component. The blood is also pushing directly on the brain. If you are referring to rapidity of deterioration although both can have a rapid decline, classically, the epidural is more rapid because it is an artery bleeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is meant by subdural collection left temporoparietal region with mass effect. Acute on chronic sdh?
Hemorrage : The subdural collection has mixed densities, thus suggesting that it may be older with blood clot that is liquifying mixed with newer blood . 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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers
It depends: Blood can collect just beneath the thick covering of the brain. This covering is called dura, and blood under this is called subdural hematoma. In acute trauma there can be a large collection of blood with swelling and severe brain damage. In minor trauma just a small thin layer of blood collects without much effect. Chronic blood can dissolve to clear fluid and leave a chronic subdural. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
