The incidence of traumatic acute subdural hematomas (ASDH) in the elderly is increasing. Despite surgical evacuation, these patients have poor survival and low rate of functional outcome, and surgical timing plays no clear role as a predictor. We investigated whether the timing of surgery had a major role in influencing the outcome in these patients.
