Management of acute intracranial and intraventricular hemorrhage

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: Acute intracranial hemorrhage and intraventricular hemorrhage are devastating disorders. The goal of this review is to familiarize clinicians with recent information pertaining to the acute care of intracranial hemorrhage and intraventricular hemorrhage. Data Sources: PubMed search and review of the relevant medical literature. Summary: The management of intracranial hemorrhage and intraventricular hemorrhage is complex. Effective treatment should include strategies designed to reduce hematoma expansion and limit the medical consequences of intracranial hemorrhage and intraventricular hemorrhage. At present, there are a number of new approaches to treatment that may reduce mortality and improve clinical outcomes. Clinicians should recognize that patients with large hematomas may make a substantial recovery. Conclusions: Patients with intracranial hemorrhage and intraventricular hemorrhage should be cared for in an intensive care unit. New therapies designed to stabilize hematoma growth and reduce hematoma burden may improve outcomes.
