Abstract

Postoperative intracerebral hemorrhages occurring after evacuation of subdural fluid collections have been infrequently reported and remain a devastating complication. The pathophysiological mechanism is still unclear. Disturbed autoregulation and restoration of normal cerebral flow seems to play an important role in this type of event because of rapid decompression. Herein, we present a case of multiple intracerebral hemorrhages in the putamen and cerebellar hemisphere following evacuation of bilateral subdural effusions, and review the relevant literature.
