MMA Embolization for Subdural Hematoma: The Mount Sinai Experience

While using a burr hole is the gold standard for surgical evacuation of a subdural hematoma, a recurrence rate of up to 33 percent after surgical intervention has been reported in patients. Interventional neurologist Shahram Majidi, MD, explains how middle meningeal artery embolization (MMAE) has emerged as a promising treatment modality for patients with chronic subdural hematoma and presents cases from Mount Sinai where this technique was applied.
