Abstract

Background: Extradural hematoma (epidural hematoma) result from tearing of dural or skull vessels caused by deformation of the skull or fracture. Epidural hematoma can occur at all ages but are seen primarily in patients younger than 60 years.Patients and Methods: this prospective study was conducted on 50 patients (38 male, 12 female) suffering from head injury and has a CT scan evidence of extradural hematoma during the period from 1 January 2006 to 31 December 2008 in Neurology surgery hospital.
Results: There were 4 patients above 50years, the cause of injury was fall in50%, assault24%, RTA20%and bullet injury 6%.the commonest site was temporal region 42%.surgical treatment were done to 39 patients, Middle meningeal artery and its branches was the source of bleeding in 42%, full recovery achieved in 62%, post operatively 4patients suffered from anaemia, one of them required blood transfusion. Conclusion: Extradural hematomas are life-threatening injury should be treated by surgery and conservative treatment only for small EDH with no symptoms and remain so or disappear by Serial follow-up CT scan Extradural hematoma.

Abstract

ABSTRACTObjectives : This study is aimed to alert the neurosurgeon about significant of the burr-hole plus D. X. T. in median survival in treatment of the deep-seated malignant brain tumor (highly malignant astrocytoma) . Methods : Throughout a period of 5 years – 50 cases which were proved and diagnosed by brain CT scan , brain MRI and histopathological examination as cases of deep-seated malignant brain tumor " malignant glioma , Astrocytoma Grade III , IV " I divided these 50 cases into 2 groups , the 1st group was 25 cases which was treated by burr-hole biopsy plus deep X. therapy while 2nd group was treated by formal , classical craniotomy flap with subtotal excision of the tumor plus deep . X. therapy all the cases were operated Al-Kadhimyah Teaching Hospital , Al-Mosawy private hospital and Al-Saady Hospital in the Al-Basra city . Result : We found there is no wide difference between these two neurosurgical methods in relation to the median survival in treatment of the deep-seated malignant brain tumor . Conclusion : The use of surgical technique of a burr hole plus D.X.T indicated the need for the use of the steriostatic surgery , therefore that a burr-hole plus D. X. T is to be recommended as a usual method of neurosurgery to treat a deep-seated malignant brain tumor " Astrocytoma Grade III , IV .

الملخـــــص : الاهداف : تهدف الدراسة الى ايقاظ جراحي الجملة العصبية حول أهمية طريقة تثقيب الجمجمة وبمساعدة العلاج بالاشعة السينية العميقة في معدل فترة العيش بعد التداخل الجراحي لمرضى اورام الدماغ الدباقية متقدمة النمو العميقة المنشأ . الطرق : خلال فترة خمس سنوات تم جمع وتشخيص ( 50 ) حالة معتمدين على مفراس الدماغ وفحص الرنين المغناطيسي للدماغ وفحص الانسجة المختبرية والتي أثبتت جميعها أورام دباقية عميقة المنشأ متقدمة النمو وقد قسمت الحالات الى مجموعتين الاولى تم علاجها بواسطة تثقيب الجمجمة مع العلاج بالاشعة السينية العميقة والمجموعة الثانية تم علاجها بواسطة فتح الجمجمة التقليدي مع استئصال جزئي كبير للورم ومن ثم علاجها بواسطة الاشعة السينية العميقة تم التداخل الجراحي في جميع الحالات في مستشفى الكاظمية التعليمي ومستشفى الموسوي الاهلي ومستشفى السعدي الاهلي في مدينة البصرة .النتائج : لم نجد فرق واسع بين الطريقتين في معدل فترة العيش بل كانت فترة العيش أطول نسبيا للمجموعة الاولى . الاستنتاج : ان استخدام طريقة تثقيب الجمجمة مع العلاج بالاشعة السينية يحتاج الى تكنيك خاص (Steriostatic surgery ) وتعتبر طريقة تثقيب الجمجمة في علاج مثل هذه الاورام هي الافضل والتي نوصي بها خصوصا في الاورام الدباقية للدماغ العميقة المنشأ المتقدمة في النمو .
