We report two cases of epidural haematoma that probably developed after removal of the epidural catheter in patients receiving multiple anticoagulant and antiplatelet therapy. The first case is a 77-year-old male patient who underwent femoropopliteal artery bypass grafting surgery. The second case is a 77-year-old woman who underwent a semi-total replacement of the right hip, three days after she had a subtrochanteric fracture. Emergency laminectomy was performed in both patients but none experienced a full recovery.
