Local and systemic pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokine patterns in patients with chronic subdural hematoma: a prospective study
Inflammation Research, 04/30/2012
Stanisic M et al. – The innate immune responses occur both locally at the site of chronic subdural hematoma (CSDH), as well as systematically in patients with CSDH. The local hyper–inflammatory and low anti–inflammatory responses exist simultaneously. The findings suggest poorly coordinated innate immune responses at the site of CSDH that may lead to propagating of local inflammatory process and basically contribute to formation and progression of CSDH.
