Abstract

This PBLD reviews the etiology and diagnosis of Intracerebral Hemorrhages (ICH) and continues to provide information regarding the acute treatment of blood pressure and coagulopathy. The text reviews appropriate neurointensive care as well as the indications for surgical interventions, such as tracheostomy, extraventricular drain placement, and decompressive craniectomy with or without clot evacuation.
