Fortunately, this isn't common, says Gregory J. O'Shanick, M.D., president and medical director of the Center for Neurorehabilitation Services in Richmond, VA, and national medical director of the Brain Injury Association of America. But prompt evaluation after a brain injury with a CT head scan can help detect dangerous bleeding. If a hematoma does exist, doctors will "drill into the skull to drain the clot before it can crowd the brain and cause further damage," Dr. O'Shanick says.
When a force is applied to the head and then transmitted through the skull to the brain, blood vessels may be torn or damaged, according to Dr. O'Shanick. As a result, says Dr. O'Shanick, the vessels may leak blood into spaces in the skull and brain.
"Generally, though, blood clots are not common after a brain injury, especially those in the mild to moderate range of severity," says Dr. O'Shanick. When used for sports, protective headgear may soften the force of a blow to the head, making a clot less likely, he said.
