Subdural hematoma evacuation

Posted by: Philip Alex | Posted on: December 18th, 2013 | 0 Comments

Mrs J is a sixty five year old lady who was brought to us with the history of altered sensorium and behavior for a day prior. She had already obtained a ct scan from outside which showed a large subdural hematoma (blood clot) in her brain compressing her brain to the other side. She needed a surgery. She was referred to IGMC Simla, but the family did not have the economic means to take her there. Manali was their last hope.

Having explained all the risks of performing this surgery in a relatively unsupported environment, we did a craniotomy and evacuation of the hematoma here. The lady made a dramatic recovery and is being discharged well. We thank God for the amazing recovery she made and for saving her life.
