Subdural hemorrhage (SDH) is a common neurological disease. In past, SDHs were managed either conservatively (non-surgically) or with surgical evacuation (burr hole versus craniotomy) depending on the severity. Surgical evacuation has major challenges including high recurrence rate, stoppage and reversal of antiplatelet or anticoagulation agents, risk of general anesthesia and surgery in elderly patients with multiple comorbidities. Given the above challenges, embolization of the distal branches of the middle meningeal artery (MMA) has recently emerged as an excellent alternate to surgical evacuation or conservative management. To the best of our knowledge, there is no literature on the embolization of the deep temporal artery (DTA) for subacute-chronic SDH. We report the first case of recurrent subdural hematoma post MMA embolization that was successfully treated with embolization of DTA.
