Intracerebral Hemorrhage

JAMA. 2011;305(7):718. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.147

Intracerebral hemorrhage is a devastating neurovascular emergency without effective therapies, despite ongoing progress in medical knowledge. The 30-day mortality rate is high—34% to 50%1—and half of the deaths occur in the first 2 days2; 1-year mortality is 40% to 65%.3 Each year, according to American Heart Association statistics, it is estimated that more than 2 million of approximately 15 million of strokes worldwide are intracerebral hemorrhages.4
