PMID:  1283624     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An unusual case of acute subdural hematoma developed after drainage of chronic subdural hematoma in a 71-year-old male. The acute subdural hematoma was located over a membranous layer in the subdural space similar to the outer membrane of the chronic subdural hematoma. Intraoperatively, bleeding from the bridging vein and oozing from the superior sagittal sinus were observed. The membranous layer probably separated from the dura mater following decompression after drainage of the contralateral hematoma, and this separation then damaged the bridging vein and superior sagittal sinus, resulting in the acute subdural hematoma.
