Chronic Subdural Hematomas: Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment Options provides a complete overview of the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnostics and treatment of this disease.

The importance of anatomical landmarks is highlighted, as well as the role of inflammatory cascades, inflammatory factors, coagulopathies and hyperfibrinolysis in the maintenance of bleeding and its healing.

The incidence of chronic subdural hematomas is increasing gradually due to population aging and associated medication use, especially anticoagulants and antiaggregants.

This condition also usually occurs following minor trauma, and in most cases the trauma is so minor that the patient may not have any recollection of the traumatic event.

The authors discuss the main targets for surgical and non surgical chronic subdural hematoma treatment.
