Abstract PURPOSE: Primary intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a common and devastating disorder that often results in long-term disability. This review examines the literature on predictors of survival and long-term functional outcome after ICH. METHOD: Medical literature review. RESULTS: Numerous clinical and radiologic variables have been shown to be associated with survival and functional recovery following ICH. These include patient age and gender, lesion size and location, initial level of consciousness, presence of intraventricular haemorrhage, hydrocephalus, and mass effect. Studies have employed a variety of outcome measures including survival and functional recovery. CONCLUSIONS: Clinical and radiologic findings following ICH may assist rehabilitation specialists as they develop treatment goals, anticipate long-term patient care needs, and educate and train caregivers.
