Abstract

Chronic subdural hematoma (cSDH) is a common neurosurgical pathology associated with older age and complicated by antiplatelet/anticoagulant therapies. With improving medical care in an aging population, the incidence of cSDH will likely increase over the next 25 years, placing a burden on health care costs. Consequently, a simple and inexpensive treatment option is desirable. As such, we report a basic, but novel, technique to drain cSDH with an Integra Camino bolt. This technique was employed in two patients, where the significant resolution of cSDH and associated clinical symptoms were observed without complications.
