Differences in hematoma expansion in deep and lobar intracerebral hemorrhage


  • Deep and lobar intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) are different, heterogeneous disease processes, with hematoma expansion (HE) being more frequent in patients with deep ICH and less HE required to result in poor clinical outcomes in this patient population.

Why this matters

    Understanding the differences between ICH presentation and associated risks and outcomes of HE will aid in identifying more appropriate treatment strategies for each patient group.
