Extradural hematoma

Extradural hematoma

Extradural haematoma (EDH) is defined as an acute haemorrhage between the dura mater and the inner surface of the skull. An EDH can cause compression of local brain structures and a rise in intracranial pressure. If intracranial pressure continues to rise, cerebellar herniation may occur leading to brainstem death.
