This is what your brain looks like when it doesn't re-expand after evacuating a subdural hematoma. We like to see a pulsatile brain re-expand and fill the space, not a tired, saggy yellow-stained brain.. with a brain like this you can expect some post op issues like failure to thrive, re-accumulation of chronic subdural fluid, confusion, etc.
This is a subdural haematoma operation after the haematoma evacuation. There you see the arachnoid membrane shining from the brain surface. As you can see there is big gap between the dura and the arachnoid.
Subdural haematoma (British spelling), also known as a subdural haemorrhage (SDH), is a type of hematoma, usually associated with traumatic brain injury. Blood gathers between the dura mater, and the brain. Usually resulting from tears in bridging veins which cross the subdural space, subdural hemorrhages may cause an increase in intracranial pressure (ICP), which can cause compression of and damage to delicate brain tissue. Subdural hematomas are often life-threatening when acute. Chronic subdural hematomas, however, have a better prognosis if properly managed.
