  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

In the previous report, it was insisted that trau-matic intracerebral hematoma should be regarded as a variety of cerebral contusion and that conservative treatment would be therapy of choice in these situa-tions. Adversely, unjudicious operation would some-times result in more expansion of hematoma by untamponade effect of decompressive craniectomy.

In the present investigation, it was attempted to provide therapeutic policy in the management of trau-matic intracerebral hematoma.

Consecutive thirty two cases of traumatic intrace-rebral hematomas were selected for this study.
