Abstract
Objective
s: Chronic subdural hematoma is common in elderly individuals. We analysed the chronic subdural hematoma in individuals aged over 70.
Methods
A total of 50 patients with chronic subdural hematoma underwent surgery at our institution during last three years. Of these, 38 patients were treated with burr hole drainage, and 12 patients with craniotomy and removal of hematoma.
Results
The fronto-temporo-parietal involvement was the most common pattern in our series. Recurrence was observed in 2 cases in the craniotomy group. There were no recurred cases in the burr hole drainage group.
Conclusion
In older age group (over 70 years), burr hole drainage treatment of the chronic subdural hematoma is considered as a sufficient surgical method for good outcome.
