The purpose of this case study is to highlight key clinical findings in a patient diagnosed with subdural hematoma. larger hematomas are treated with decompression surgery. Additional surgery may be needed to remove large or thick blood clots if present. Sometimes hematomas cause few or no symptoms and are small enough that they don’t require surgical treatment.

Dr. Gurneet Sawhney, regarded as one of the best neurosurgeon in Mumbai for performing Microneurosurgery, Neuroendoscopy, and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeries.
The current case study describes a patient with subdural hematoma. Its life-threatening condition is caused by a sudden hemorrhage or bleeding between the brain and its outermost covering. subdural hematoma is a medical emergency and can be fatal if it is not treated within time. With treatment, however, the prognosis is good.
A 45 YO man arrived at the emergency room in a semi-conscious state with a low pulse rate. He was unable to open his eyes or move his left side. He was not responding to any of the commands either. A CT scan was done to confirm the diagnosis of growing pressure within the skull (intracranial pressure). Also, it was necessary to understand the extent of internal bleeding between the brain and its outermost covering.
A life-saving surgery was performed on him to remove the hemorrhage after seeking the consent of his family. After the surgery, the pressure on the brain was reduced to a great extent. The patient was kept on a ventilator for 1 day to ensure improvement in brain functioning. The post-surgery CT scan revealed recovery in the brain.
