Hematoma treatment - A treatment for Epidural hematoma
Hematoma treatment often requires surgery. The type of surgery depends on the characteristics of your hematoma. Options include :
If the blood is localized and isn't clotting excessively, your doctor may create a hole through your skull (perforation) and then remove the liquid by suction.
Large hematomas may require that a section of your skull be opened (craniotomy) to remove the blood.
Some subdural hematomas don't need to be removed because they're small and produce no signs or symptoms.
Doctors may use medications, such as corticosteroids and diuretics, to control brain swelling (edema) after a head injury.
