Abstract

Putaminal hemorrhage is the most common among the hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhages. The optimal form of treatment still remains controversial. Some neurosurgeons, especially in Japan, believe surgical treatment is superior, while others hold that hypertensive putaminal hemorrhage should be treated conservatively. Our clinical results have shown that the surgical treatment is not superior to the conservative one and that the results depend upon the size and extent of the hemorrhage (Waga and Xamamoto 1983; Waga et al. 1986)
