What is subdural hematoma?

A subdural hematoma is characterized by collection of blood between the covering of the brain (dura) and the surface of the brain. It is typically caused by a traumatic brain injury. Surgery is needed to relieve the pressure on the brain caused by the blood and prevent permanent damage.
