Title : Middle meningeal artery embolization for chronic subdural hematoma: A case report


We present a case of chronic subdural hematoma refractory to burr hole surgery treated successfully with middle meningeal artery embolization.

Presentation of Case:
61-year-old gentleman presented with a history of headaches and single episodes of vomiting. Neurological examination was normal. A non-contrast computed tomography (CT) scan of the head showed chronic subdural hematoma with midline shift. The patient was managed with burr hole surgery but there was no improvement in the symptoms and CT findings of recollection of blood in subdural space. The patient was then managed endovascularly with embolization of the middle meningeal artery (MMA), patient recovered fully after the endovascular treatment.

Chronic subdural hematoma can present clinically with vomiting and headache, if refractory to burr hole surgery it can be managed with the embolization of the middle meningeal artery.

Subdural hematoma can be successfully managed by endovascular treatment at LMIC.
