BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to investigate the usefulness of the computed tomography (CT) island sign for predicting early hematoma growth and poor functional outcome. METHODS: We included patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) who had undergone baseline CT within 6 hours after ICH symptom onset in our hospital between July 2011 and September 2016. Two readers independently assessed the presence of the island sign on the admission noncontrast CT scan...

Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is diagnosed in stroke units after lobar intracerebral hemorrhage. CAA can also be diagnosed in memory clinics when patients are referred for cognitive impairment assessment, and may be a reason for admission to emergency or neurology departments because of rapidly progressive cognitive or neurological decline, or a transient focal neurological episode. CAA may even be observed in older community-dwelling individuals. Neuropsychological impairment in CAA has been described over the past 20 years...

Although commonly arising from poorly controlled hypertension, spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage may occur secondary to several other etiologies. Clinical presentation to the emergency department ranges from headache with vomiting to coma. In addition to managing the ABCs, the crux of emergency management lies in stopping hematoma expansion and other complications to prevent clinical deterioration. This may be achieved primarily through anticoagulation reversal, blood pressure, empiric management of intracranial pressure, and early neurosurgical consultation for posterior fossa hemorrhage...

Acutely increased intracranial pressure (ICP) is a life-threatening neurosurgical emergency. Optimal management strategy is selected according to the causative process. Typical causes are intracranial bleeds like traumatic subdural, epidural, or intracerebral hematoma (ICH); spontaneous ICH, intraventricular hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and hydrocephalus. When occurring without significant brain injury and treated effectively before herniation, a full recovery can be expected. In intraparenchymal injuries a full recovery is unlikely since dead cells in the central nervous system leave an "empty hole," to be replaced by cerebrospinal fluid...

BACKGROUND: Continuous electroencephalography (CEEG) is a sensitive, noninvasive surrogate monitor of cerebral blood flow (CBF). Changes in CBF can be seen as changes in the frequencies on the CEEG. This case series suggests that increase in CEEG frequencies may be used to detect improved CBF following pressure augmentation such as with treatment of vasospasm from subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) or acute thrombosis from ischemic stroke. The application of this observation to clinical decision-making has not been clearly defined and requires further study...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Low serum potassium is associated with stroke in populations with cardiovascular disease, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus but has not been studied in a mainly healthy population. We aimed to study the relation between serum potassium and incident stroke and mortality in the Malmö Preventive Project, a large cohort with screening in early mid-life and follow-up >25 years. METHODS: Serum potassium measurements and covariates were available in 21 353 individuals (79% men, mean age 44 years)...

Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is the most devastating and disabling type of stroke. Uncontrolled hypertension (HTN) is the most common cause of spontaneous ICH. Recent advances in neuroimaging, organised stroke care, dedicated Neuro-ICUs, medical and surgical management have improved the management of ICH. Early airway protection, control of malignant HTN, urgent reversal of coagulopathy and surgical intervention may increase the chance of survival for patients with severe ICH. Intensive lowering of systolic blood pressure to <140 mm Hg is proven safe by two recent randomised trials...

Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) may lead to intractable elevation of intracranial pressure (ICP), which may lead to decompressive craniectomy (DC). In this setting, surgical evacuation of ICH is controversially discussed. We therefore analysed radiological and clinical parameters to investigate the influence of additional haematoma evacuation to DC in patients with ICH. Forty-four patients suffering from spontaneous, hypertensive ICH between August 2007 and February 2016 underwent DC with and without ICH evacuation at the author's institution...

PURPOSE: Hypertension is a significant risk factor for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). The importance of managing blood pressure to reduce the risk of ICH has been recognized. However, few studies have focused on ICH outcomes due to untreated hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a 5-year, retrospective, multicenter study of 490 consecutive ICH patients with histories of untreated-hypertension (n=56), treated-hypertension (n=314), and normotension (n=120)...

BACKGROUND: We previously introduced a novel noninvasive technique of intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring in children with open fontanelles. OBJECTIVE: To compare the ICP obtained by our new technique to the ICP derived from an intradurally implanted ICP measurement device (external ventricular drain, subdural ICP device). METHODS: Children with open fontanelles and need of intracranial monitoring were included in this study. A standard ICP probe was placed upon the frontal fontanelle and data were compared with the values recorded by an already invasively implanted subdural ICP technique...

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a subset of stroke due to spontaneous bleeding within the parenchyma of the brain. It is potentially lethal, and survival depends on ensuring an adequate airway, proper diagnosis, and early management of several specific issues such as blood pressure, coagulopathy reversal, and surgical hematoma evacuation for appropriate patients. ICH was chosen as an Emergency Neurological Life Support (ENLS) protocol because intervention within the first hours may improve outcome, and it is critical to have site-specific protocols to drive care quickly and efficiently...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Increased sympathetic tone causes hypertension after intracerebral hemorrhage, and blood pressure reduction has been studied as a way to decrease hemorrhage growth and improve outcomes. It is unknown if the antihypertensive used to achieve blood pressure goals influences either. Because sympatholytic drugs reduce death and infection in animal models, we hypothesized that labetalol would improve outcomes compared with nicardipine. METHODS: Prospective data from a single center were retrospectively reviewed...

In a prior study of intracerebral hemorrhage monitoring using magnetic induction phase shift (MIPS), we found that MIPS signal changes occurred prior to those seen with intracranial pressure. However, the characteristic MIPS alert is not yet fully explained. Combining the brain physiology and MIPS theory, we propose that cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may be the primary factor that leads to hematoma expansion being alerted by MIPS earlier than with intracranial pressure monitoring. This paper investigates the relationship between CSF and MIPS in monitoring of rabbit intracerebral hemorrhage models, which is based on the MIPS measurements data, the quantified data on CSF from medical images and the amount of injected blood in the rabbit intracerebral hemorrhage model...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: We review the current evidence for medical and surgical treatments of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). RECENT FINDINGS: Therapy with hemostatic agents (e.g. factor VIIa and tranexamic acid) if started early after bleeding onset may reduce hematoma expansion, but their clinical effectiveness has not been shown. Rapid anticoagulation reversal with prothrombin concentrates (PCC) plus vitamin K is the first choice in vitamin K antagonist-related ICH...

Hemorrhagic stroke, accounting for 10-30% of stroke cases, carries high rates of morbidity and mortality. This review presents the current knowledge on the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO)-based modalities in the preclinical research on hemorrhagic stroke. Both preconditioning and post-treatment with HBO are considered as prospective therapeutic options. High efficacy of HBO therapy (HBOT) for brain hemorrhage has been noted. We found that moderate hyperbaric pressures appear optimal for therapeutic effect, while the therapeutic window of opportunity is short...

Histotripsy is a minimally invasive ultrasound therapy that has shown rapid liquefaction of blood clots through human skullcaps in an in-vitro intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) model. However, the efficiency of these treatments can be compromised if the skull induced aberrations are uncorrected. We have developed a catheter hydrophone which can perform aberration correction and drain the liquefied clot following histotripsy treatment. Histotripsy pulses were delivered through an excised human skullcap using a 256-element, 500 kHz hemisphere array transducer with a 15 cm focal distance...

Current opinions about the effect of intensive blood pressure (BP) reduction for acute intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) are inconsistent. We performed a meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy and safety of intensive BP reduction for acute ICH by analyzing data from several recent randomized controlled trials (RCTs). There were six eligible studies that met the inclusion criteria, for a total of 4,385 acute ICH patients in this meta-analysis. After analyzing these data, we found differences between intensive and standard BP lowering treatment groups in total mortality rates, unfavorable outcomes, hematoma expansion, neurologic deterioration, and severe hypotension were not significant...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether clevidipine (CLEV) achieved faster blood pressure control compared to nicardipine (NIC) in patients presenting with either an acute ischemic stroke (AIS) or a spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). METHODS: This was a retrospective, observational, cohort study conducted in patients with AIS or ICH admitted to the emergency department of a Comprehensive Stroke Center from November 2011 to June 2013 who received CLEV or NIC continuous infusion for acute blood pressure management...
