Answer

In older patients, cardiovascular disease and arterial hypertension are found to be more prevalent. In one study, 16% of patients with chronic subdural hematomas were on aspirin therapy. Major dehydration is a less commonly associated condition and is found concurrently in only 2% of patients.
