Spontaneous Complete Resolution of Significant Volume Extradural Haematoma: A Case Report
AbstractAccording to brain Trauma foundation guidelines, any extradural hematoma with volume more than 30 ml should undergo surgical evacuation regardless of the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). Patient presented was neurologically normal with mild headache, his CT Scan Head showed left parietal extradural hematoma (volume7.35x2.37x7.1=50cc). The patient was kept under regular clinico-radiological assessment. In ten weeks, duration, it showed complete resolution of extradural hematoma. This support it as rationalized treatment approach for such cases before surgery. Which will reduce workload on busy Neurosurgical operation theatre and surgical complications, also reduce expenditure on health care.
