CASTELLUCCIO, Gabriel et al. Postoperative hematoma in neurosurgery: A case report and review. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2016, vol.1, n.2, pp.70-80. ISSN 2393-6797.

Postoperative haematoma is one of the most severe complications in neurosurgery, with a mortality rate ranging between 18 and 32% and a significant morbidity. Risk factors clinicals, perioperatives and pathologicals have been indentified that increase the likelihood of this complication. The authors report the case of a patient who suffered a postoperative haematoma after the resection of a brain metastasis and analyze the possible causes that led to this complication. They also perform an exhaustive non systematic review of the literature about postoperative haemorrhage, their risk factors and perioperative management.

Keywords : postoperative haematoma; risk factors; perioperative hypertension; central nervous system tumors.
