Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In a twelve-month period, 16 patients over the age of 65 years presented with chronic subdural haematomas. Burr-hole aspiration in 15 resulted in complete recovery in 12, minimal dependence in one and significant dependence in two. One patient was managed conservatively and died. Difficulties in diagnosis are discussed.
