  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Post-shunt subdural hematoma was found in two patients with hydrocephalus due to subarachnoid hemorrhage. The first case was a 46-year-old man with two episodes of subarachnoid hemorrhage from anterior communicating aneurysm. Two weeks after neck-clipping for the aneurysm, a ventriculo-peritoneal shunt with Pudenz's system was performed since hydrocephalus with moderately increased pressure had been found. He did well for one month, then soon after mild head injury, disorientation and right hemiparesis developed. Cerebral angiogram revealed avascular space in the left parietotemporal region.
