Method: This descriptive - analytic study was done on 90 patients with chronic subdural hematoma whom treated with Burr hole trephination surgery technique in Urmia, Iran during 2009-13. Age, sex and size of hematoma, mid-line shift, density and location of hematoma, level of consciousness before surgery, history of disease, physical examination, post-operative brain expansion and post-operative pneumocephalus were recorded for each patient as possible effective variables in outcome. Patients prognosis were evaluated by modified Rankin scale was considered as follow: 0-1
