Show Summary Details

Preview

• In up to one-third of the patients with ICH the early phase is complicated by haematoma growth. • Despite recent efforts to find effective treatment, therapeutic options are still limited and functional outcomes remain poor. • Promising approaches in the treatment of ICH include better management of blood pressure, thrombolytic therapy for intraventricular haemorrhage, early haemostasis to prevent haematoma growth, and minimally invasive surgery for clot lysis.
