NJ Neurologist, Dr. John Lipani, Offers Safe Treatment Method for Blood Clots Near the Brain

Princeton Neurological Surgery’s Dr. Lipani, M.D., P.h.D., F.A.A.N.S., F.A.C.S., performs successful burr hole drainage procedures to eliminate life threatening subdural hematomas.

Hamilton, NJ ( Freepr101 ) August 16, 2013 - Blood clots that are close to the brain are undoubtedly dangerous. Known as subdural hematomas, these clots form under the protective layer of the brain (the dura) and may cause life-threatening complications if they compress the brain tissue. Clots can be caused by a variety of factors, the most common of which include old age, use of anticoagulant medications, excessive alcohol consumption, and repetitive injuries to the head.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of a hematoma, such as headaches, confusion, dizziness, or seizures, you should contact an experienced medical professional for a diagnosis immediately. Dr. John Lipani of Princeton Neurological Surgery will always begin looking for a hematoma with a physical and neurological examination. Next, he will create an image of your brain using a CT or MRI scan. If a clot is found, treatment will begin immediately.

Sometimes, open surgery known as a craniotomy may be required to remove a clot of this nature, but many hematomas can be successfully removed with the use of burr hole drainage. Burr hole drainage consists of a small perforation put into the skull to allow the blood to be suctioned out, removing the clot. Dr. Lipani offers this treatment as a safe, effective way to remove a life-threatening health problem.

After a burr hole drainage, Dr. Lipani recommends staying in the hospital for several days to recover. Patients may experience some discomfort, for which they will likely be prescribed medication. Dr. Lipani further recommends staying away from any strenuous activity in the weeks after surgery, as well as avoiding any activities that can result in some kind of head injury.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of a subdural hematoma, it is essential that you contact an experienced medical professional like Dr. Lipani. Those experiencing any neurological health issues should contact Princeton Neurological Surgery, where experienced staff members can help you quickly, safely, and effectively.
