Cerebral hemorrhages

on 30.1.09 with 0 comments

  • Epidural hematoma – almost always from trauma

  • Subdural hematoma – usually from trauma

  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage – usually not from trauma

    • Bleeding between arachnoid and pia mater

    • Usually from ruptured berry aneurysm at branch points of Circle of Willis; also from trauma, bleeding d/o, AVM, or rupture of intraparenchymal hemorrhage into ventricles

    • Berry aneurysms are more common in those with HTN (or at least more prone to rupture) and are associated with ADPKC
