Abstract

Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is one of the very common surgically treatable neurosurgical entities. Still there is lack of uniformity in the management of CSDH amongst surgeons in terms of various treatment strategies and protocols. Burr-hole drainage is the treatment modality of choice for an uncomplicated CSDH. Some recent trials support the use of drain to lessen the rate of recurrence. Twist drill craniostomy and craniotomy do also play a role in the management of CSDH. The current study is a retrospective analysis of 270 surgically treated patients with chronic subdural hematoma at a tertiary care center over a span of five years. The present study highlighted on rate of recurrence, re-surgery, mortality and morbidity.
