HEMATOMA EVACUATION

Hematoma Evacuation

Hematoma evacuation is the removal of a Hematoma. A hematoma is a common problem that occurs as a result of damage to one of the larger blood vessels in the body. Most people experience a hematoma at some point in their lives. A hematoma can look like a bruise, but bruises occur due to damage to small blood vessels rather than large ones. A hematoma may require surgical drainage. Surgery may be more likely if the blood is putting pressure on the spinal cord, brain, or other organs. In other cases, doctors may want to drain a hematoma that is at risk of infection.

The type of hematoma depends on where it appears in the body. The location may also help determine how potentially dangerous it is. The types of hematomas are:

· Ear hematoma: An aural or ear hematoma appears between the cartilage of the ear and the skin on top of it.

  • Subungual hematoma: This hematoma appears under the nail.
  • Scalp hematoma: A scalp hematoma typically appears as a bump on the head.
  • Septal hematoma: Usually the result of a broken nose,
  • Subcutaneous hematoma: This is a hematoma that appears just under the skin,
  • Retroperitoneal hematoma: This hematoma occurs inside the abdominal cavity
  • Splenic hematoma: This type of hematoma appears in the spleen.
  • Hepatic hematoma: A hepatic hematoma occurs in the liver.
  • Spinal epidural hematoma: This term refers to a hematoma between the lining of the spinal cord and the vertebrae.
  • Intracranial epidural hematoma: This type of hematoma occurs between the skull plate and the lining on the outside of the brain.
  • Subdural hematoma: A subdural hematoma occurs between the brain tissue and the internal lining of the brain.
