BACKGROUND: Middle cerebral artery aneurysms (MCA aneurysms) belong to the most frequent type of intracranial aneurysms forming an intracerebral hematoma. The consequences of the hematoma-the laterality, the impact of ICH volume and size of the aneurysm with the final outcome of these patients had not been studied in detail in this location, and we focused on the analysis of these factors. METHODS: Patients with MCA aneurysms and associated intracerebral hematomas with a volume ≥10 ml were studied; these were treated from January 2006 to December 2015...

Brain abscess is a rare but potentially lethal infection of brain parenchyma, requiring prompt surgical intervention and high-dose antibiotic therapy. Brain abscess is a known complication of surgically treated intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), but it is exceptionally rare that it occurs at the same site of a nonoperated ICH. Such cases may result from hematogenous spread from distant foci (pneumonia, infectious endocarditis) or contiguous sites. Herein, the authors report a case of 75-year-old woman presenting with a brain abscess 6 weeks after a nonoperated ICH...

In recent decades, the medical and surgical treatment of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) have become the focus of a number of scientific investigations. This effort has been led by an international group of neurologists and neurosurgeons with the goal of studying functional recovery and developing new medical and surgical treatments to facilitate improved clinical outcomes. Currently, two of the most pressing ICH investigational goals are (1) early blood pressure control, and (2) safe hematoma volume reduction...

Quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) is an MR technique that depicts and quantifies magnetic susceptibility sources. Mapping iron, the dominant susceptibility source in the brain, has many important clinical applications. Herein, we review QSM applications in the diagnosis, medical management, and surgical treatment of disease. To assist in early disease diagnosis, QSM can identify elevated iron levels in the motor cortex of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis patients, in the substantia nigra of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, in the globus pallidus, putamen, and caudate of Huntington's disease patients, and in the basal ganglia of Wilson's disease patients...

BACKGROUND: Studies on antihypertensive treatment for surgical patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage are insufficient. This pilot study was conducted to investigate the safety of the perioperative intensive blood pressure lowering in surgical patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage. METHODS: This study was a prospective, parallel, randomized, assessor-blinded trial. Patients allocated to the intensive group received perioperative intensive antihypertensive treatment aiming to achieve a target systolic blood pressure between 120 and 140 mm Hg, whereas the patients in the conservative group received conservative treatment aiming to achieve a target systolic blood pressure between 140 and 180 mm Hg for 7 days...

BACKGROUND: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a disease with high mortality and a substantial risk of recurrence. However, the recurrence risk is poorly documented and the knowledge of potential predictors for recurrence among co-morbidities and medicine with antithrombotic effect is limited. OBJECTIVES: 1) To estimate the short- and long-term cumulative risks of recurrent intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). 2) To investigate associations between typical comorbid diseases, surgical treatment, use of medicine with antithrombotic effects, including antithrombotic treatment (ATT), selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI's), and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's) with recurrent ICH...

BACKGROUND Developmental venous anomalies (DVAs) are rare vascular diseases becoming more frequently diagnosed. Most patients with DVAs have no clinical symptoms with the exception of a few patients with epilepsy, intracranial hemorrhage, or neuro-function deficit. There is still controversy with respect to treatment strategies for symptomatic DVAs. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-three cases of symptomatic DVAs from January 2006 to October 2015 were retrospectively reviewed and the imaging characteristics of DVAs by CT, MRI, and DSA and the treatment modalities for DVAs were studied...

BACKGROUND: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is one of the most common forms of cerebral hemorrhage, the morbidity and death of ICH is high worldwide. ICH can be spontaneous or caused by hypertension, coagulopathy, angiopathy, head trauma, bleeding disorders, tumors, or drug usage. ICH is the most serious and least treatable form of hemorrhagic stroke, with rapidly increasing hematoma size and often resulting in significant brain injury and long term neurological deficits. Surgical hematoma evacuation remains controversial...

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) remains a cause of death in hematologic malignancies. Asparaginase represents a key agent in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The toxicity of asparaginase includes coagulopathy such as thrombotic or bleeding tendency. We report a case of fatal cerebral hemorrhage in a 12-year-old girl treated for ALL. Cerebral hemorrhage occurred after three injections of L-asparaginase. The patient presented with hypofibrinogenemia (0.36g/L), associated with thrombocytopenia (24,000/mm(3))...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Hemorrhagic stroke comprises approximately 15% to 20% of all strokes. This article provides readers with an understanding of the indications and significance of various neuroimaging techniques available for patients presenting with hemorrhagic strokes of distinct causes. RECENT FINDINGS: The most common initial neuroimaging study is a noncontrast head CT, which allows for the identification of hemorrhage. Once an intracranial hemorrhage has been identified, the pattern of blood and the patient's medical history, neurologic examination, and laboratory studies lead the practitioner to pursue further neuroimaging studies to guide the medical, surgical, and interventional management...

Spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), defined as nontraumatic bleeding into the brain parenchyma, is the second most common subtype of stroke, with 5.3 million cases and over 3 million deaths reported worldwide in 2010. Case fatality is extremely high (reaching approximately 60 % at 1 year post event). Only 20 % of patients who survive are independent within 6 months. Factors such as chronic hypertension, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, and anticoagulation are commonly associated with ICH. Chronic arterial hypertension represents the major risk factor for bleeding...

Cerebral Cavernous Malformation (CCM) is a vascular disease of proven genetic origin, which may arise sporadically or is inherited as an autosomal dominant condition with incomplete penetrance and highly variable expressivity. CCM lesions exhibit a range of different phenotypes, including wide inter-individual differences in lesion number, size, and susceptibility to intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Lesions may remain asymptomatic or result in pathological conditions of various type and severity at any age, with symptoms ranging from recurrent headaches to severe neurological deficits, seizures, and stroke...

BACKGROUND: Conventionally, patients suffering a massive intraventricular hemorrhage have undergone external ventricular drainage. However, long-term or repeated drainage increases the risk of complications due to infections or shunt dependency. Neuroendoscopic surgery may offer some advantages over more conventional procedures. METHODS: Thirteen patients suffering intraventricular hematoma associated with intracerebral hemorrhage, treated in our hospital between April 2011 and March 2014, were reviewed retrospectively...
