The relationship of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging findings and closed system drainage in the recurrence of chronic subdural hematoma

Journal of Neurosurgery
K TsutsumiT Kirino


Although chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a well-known entity, its recurrence rate has remained uncertain. There is little knowledge concerning whether the results of radiological imaging can be used to predict CSDH recurrence or whether surgical methods can influence this rate. The first aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between the recurrence rate of CSDHs and their appearance on preoperative magnetic resonance (MR) or computerized tomography images. The second aim is to evaluate by means of a prospective randomized method the usefulness of closed-system drainage. From January 1988 through June 1996, the authors surgically treated 257 consecutive adult patients with CSDHs. Data obtained in 199 patients who were evaluated preoperatively by MR imaging were analyzed. Thirty-one of these patients underwent bilateral operations and thus 230 operative sites of CSDH were included in the analyses. The cases of CSDH were separated into high- and nonhigh-intensity groups on the basis of the appearance on T1-weighted MR images. From July 1992 to June 1996, the authors conducted a prospective randomized study on the recurrence rate of CSDH in patients undergoing burr-hole irrigation with or without closed system draina...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
