The clinical course of surgically treated posttraumatic subdural hygromas.


The clinical course of 11 patients with a subdural hygroma, who underwent neurosurgery, was studied. In the first week after the operation no improvement of the mental status could be detected. We considered therefore that operation hardly contributed to improvement. Thus the need to operate is limited to special cases such as acute or space-occupying subdural hygroma.
