Often caused by severe head injuries, a subdural hematoma is an accumulation of blood between the layers of tissue that surround the brain. Bleeding from a subdural hematoma increases pressure on the brain and can be life-threatening. Some subdural hematomas stop without medical intervention, while others require surgical drainage.
At the Traumatic Brain Injury Center, we evaluate, diagnose and treat individuals with epidural hematoma.
