Surgery in Traumatic Intracerebral Bleeding Based on Computerized Tomographical Findings
Routine use of axial computerized tomography in neurotraumatology has very much facilitated rapid diagnosis and exact classification of traumatic intracranial hemorrhages. As a result, it has also become possible to distinguish intracerebral hematomas from so-called space-occupying contusions. This was hardly possible using earlier, conventional methods (echoencephalography, carotid angiography) which were associated with a high rate of error. It is, however, necessary to examine our former attitude toward surgical indications.
