Abstract Share this page

The starting point for any discussion of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is that it is a bad disease. Despite improvements in neurological intensive care (and concerns that ICH outcome may be worsened by physician pessimism1), the fact remains that fewer than one-third of ICH victims make a good functional recovery.2,3 Another study examining trends in ICH outcome found essentially no improvement between 1988 (1-year mortality of 59%) and 1998 to 2003 (1-year mortality 53%),4 likely reflecting the lack of proven treatments for acute ICH. The incidence of ICH should remain stable or rise, as ongoing improvements in blood pressure control are offset by other trends that favor ICH occurrence such as aging of the population, greater use of anticoagulants and thrombolytics, and the absence of preventive treatment for cerebral amyloid angiopathy.
