Epidural Hematoma, a Rare Complication After the Use of Mayfield Clamp: A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Herein, we describe a case of epidural hematoma associated with the use of a Mayfield head clamp. An 18-year old patient with an upper brainstem tumour causing obstructive hydrocephalus underwent a routine third ventriculostomy, which unexpectedly revealed an intracranial hemorrhage. We outline potential risk factors, propose an algorithm for preventing complications associated with the use of pin-type fixation, and conducted a structured review of the literature to identify similar clinical scenarios.
