Abstract

We report on 146 patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage treated in the period between 1984 and 1988. The aim of this retrospective study was to point out factors for operative respectively conservative treatment. Looking for etiology, age, unconsciousness, localization and extension of hematoma as well as bleeding into the ventricles our results showed that patients over 70 years of age and/or in coma III and IV (Brussels Coma Scale) have a bad prognosis as well as patients with intraventricular bleeding. Patients seem to benefit from operation if hematoma is located in the hemisphere or cerebellar and the extension ranges from 3 to 5 cm.
