Effect of intracerebral hemorrhage location on hematoma expansion

Takeaway

  • Less hematoma expansion (HE) is observed in lobar compared to deep intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) but the use of absolute growth thresholds in defining HE may have limitations when comparing groups with different baseline hematoma sizes.

Why this matters ?

  • This suggests that ICH location should be taken into consideration for both future ICH studies and coagulopathy treatment strategies for HE.
