hemorrhage

 [hem´ŏ-rij]
the escape of blood from a ruptured vessel; it can be either external or internal. Blood from an artery is bright red in color and comes in spurts; that from a vein is dark red and comes in a steady flow. Aside from the obvious flow of blood from a wound or body orifice, massive hemorrhage can be detected by other signs, such as restlessness, cold and clammy skin, thirst, increased and thready pulse, rapid and shallow respirations, and a drop in blood pressure. If the hemorrhage continues unchecked, the patient may complain of visual disturbances, ringing in the ears, or extreme weakness.

Therefore surgery associated complications including infection, organ failure, rehaemorrhagia and thrombogenesis are prone to occur in the respiratory system, urinary system, nervous system and digestive system after craniotomy.21 Though small bone window craniotomy can effectively reduce the incidences of some complications, the incidence of surgery associated complications is still up to 40%, and some patients have died of the complications.22 Neuroendoscopic hematoma evacuation can also induce similar complications in the treatment of cerebral hemorrhage, but the incidence of complications is much lower.
