Chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH) is a condition in which blood accumulates within the subdural space and may cause neurologic deficits. CSDH patients with neurologic deficits usually will undergo surgery, but reoccurrence is common. Middle meningeal artery (MMA) embolization has been proposed as one of the CSDH treatment options, either being used as a single treatment for the neurologically stable patients or certain conditions that may not allow patients to undergo surgery, or as a perioperative treatment. The authors reported a CSDH case with neurologic deficits who was on antiplatelet treatment that underwent both burr hole and MMA embolization for curation and prevention of rebleeding. The result showed near-complete blood resorption and no neurologic deficits.
