Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Spontaneous spinal epidural haematomas are rare and in only about 10% of the reported cases has the vascular source of the bleeding been detected. A case of acute cervical epidural haematoma, arising from a ruptured vascular malformation, successfully operated on, is presented. Clinical, neuroradiological, and pathological findings are described in detail. Significance of postoperative selective spinal angiography is discussed.
