Abstract
Epidural hematomas are usually traumatic in origin. Non-traumatic spontaneous epidural hematoma is rare and its incidence is not known. It can occur in the presence of coagulopathy and hypotension. We report a case of spontaneous intracranial epidural hematoma following the aortic valve replacement, possibly arising from excessive anticoagulation and hypotension during ventricular fibrillation.
Key Words: Cardiac surgery, Complications, Epidural hematoma, Spontaneous
