PMID:  18507959     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Intracerebral haemorrhages occurring after removal of chronic subdural haematoma have been reported as a rare but nearly uniformly devastating postoperative occurrence with incidence ranges between 0,7 and 5%. The absence of a particular attention paid to such complication in literature prompted us to present this report adding our personal experience to the cases already described in the literature.
