    Neurological Outcome in a Term Infant with Tentorial Laceration Leading to Subdural Haemorrhage Following Vacuum-Assisted Delivery: A Case Report and Literature Review

    Hee Chan Kang and Suresh Chandran*

    There is a paucity of literature on this potentially devastating side effect of vacuum-assisted delivery. We present here a significant subdural haemorrhage associated with tentorial tear following vacuum-assisted delivery that resolved with only supportive medical measures without resulting in any neurological deficits nor delays on thorough examination and formal neuro-developmental assessment.
