What is Intracerebral Haemorrhage?
Intracerebral Haemorrhage is a form of haemorrhagic stroke caused by the formation of a hematoma within the brain’s parenchyma. This critical condition arises from the sudden rupture of a blood vessel, leading to severe and life-threatening complications.
Recognising the Symptoms of Intracerebral Haemorrhage
- Paralysis, numbness, weakness, or tingling sensation in the limbs and face
- Sudden onset of excruciating headache
- Speech and swallowing difficulties
- Vision-related issues
- Altered balance and coordination
- Nausea and vomiting
What causes Intracerebral Haemorrhage
Uncontrolled hypertension is commonly associated with intracerebral haemorrhage. Other factors contributing to this condition include:
- Traumatic head injury
- Underlying conditions like arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and tumours
- Ruptured cerebral aneurysm
- Use of certain medications, such as blood thinners
- Substance abuse
- Underlying bleeding disorder
Diagnosis of Intracerebral Haemorrhage
Diagnostic methods for Intracerebral Haemorrhage are the same as those used for diagnosing a Hemorrhagic Stroke:
- Computerized Tomography (CT) scan
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Electroencephalogram (EEG)
Management / Treatment Intracerebral Haemorrhage at IBS Hospital
Several treatment options are available at IBS Hospital for patients with Intracerebral Haemorrhage:
Surgical Clipping: Surgical clamps are employed to reduce blood flow to the aneurysm and prevent rupture.
Coiling (Endovascular Embolization): Using a catheter, detachable coils are implanted into the aneurysms to block blood flow.
AVM Removal Surgery: An option for patients with small aneurysms in easily accessible brain areas.
Stereotactic Radiosurgery: High-intensity radiation is used to repair blood vessel malformations.
Please note that treatment approaches are tailored to individual cases and should be discussed with our medical experts for personalized guidance.
