Abstract

Objective: To determine the efficacy of mini-craniotomy for evacuation of mix-density subdural hematoma in terms of early clinical outcome.

Study Design: Quasi-experimental study.

Place and Duration of Study: Neurosurgery Department, Combined Military Hospital, Rawalpindi Pakistan, from Jan to Dec 2020.

Methodology: Eighty patients with mixed-density subdural hematoma were included in the study. All were subjected to minicraniotomy under general anaesthesia. Post-operative Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) was monitored and compared with the preoperative Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) to see the early clinical outcome of the patients.

Results: Out of 80 patients with mixed-density subdural, 38(47.5%) were females, whereas 42(52.5%) were males. The mean age of the patients was 70.9±6.98 years. Improvement in Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) after 24hrs showed that 68(85%) patients had a favourable outcome, while 12(15%) had the same condition post-operatively.

Conclusion: Mini-craniotomy is a suitable surgical procedure for the treatment of mixed-density subdural hematoma.
