We are seeing brain hematomas more frequently due to head injuries that can happen during sports which are increasingly taking more time in our lives, serious traffic accidents due to the increasing speed of transportation vehicles, and blasts in increasingly frequent terrorist incidents. Medical names for these brain hematomas include epidural hematomas, subdural hematomas and subarachnoid hematomas.
Nowadays, the increasingly advanced level of health services of our homeland has made both the transportation of the patient with the ambulance services, and the diagnosis processes in the emergency services, fast and reliable. As a result, patients with brain hematoma have an increased chance of being rescued.
The basic rule in hematomas is to stop and evacuate the bleeding. But of course, damage and risk we may create during this procedure must be less than the damage that the bleeding may give to the patient. That is, the decision about the timing of the surgery and the choice of the surgical procedure will be made by the neurosurgeon accordingly.
