  • Epidural Hematoma

    The recommendation is to obtain a follow-up head CT scan within 6 to 8 hours following brain injury.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An initial diagnosis of aortic dissection with an ischaemic paraplegia was made.[jnnp.bmj.com] Higher rates are associated with the following: Advanced age Intradural lesions Temporal location Increased hematoma volume Rapid clinical progression Pupillary abnormalities[emedicine.com]
