Decompressive Hemicraniectomy Without Clot Evacuation In Supratentorial Deep-seated Intracerebral Hemorrhage

Abstract

Decompressive craniectomy (DC) lowers intracranial pressure and improves outcomes in patients with malignant middle cerebral artery stroke; yet, its usefulness in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is unclear. The authors sought to assess the preliminary utility of decompressive hemicraniectomy (DHC) without clot evacuation in patients with deep-seated supratentorial ICH.
