Pediatric Extradural Hematoma: Clinical Characteristics, Management, and Prognosis

Dr. Vikrant Yadav | Dr. Anurag Sahu

Abstract: This article explores the clinical characteristics, management strategies, and prognosis of pediatric patients with extradural hematoma EDH resulting from traumatic brain injuries TBIs. EDH, a collection of blood between the dura and skull bone, poses significant morbidity and mortality risks among the pediatric population. The study, conducted at a neurosurgery department, retrospectively analyzes 118 patients aged 2 to 14 years who underwent surgical treatment for traumatic EDH. The study investigates demographic distribution, mode of injury, presenting complaints, site of EDH, associated lesions, and outcomes. Key findings highlight the prevalence of male patients, a range of presenting complaints including altered sensorium and vomiting, and the significance of prompt diagnosis and timely surgical intervention in achieving favorable outcomes. The study underscores the importance of maintaining a high index of suspicion, utilizing neuroimaging techniques, and adopting appropriate surgical strategies for managing pediatric EDH cases.
