Irimia-Sieira P, Moya-Molina M, Martinez-Vila E. Aspectos clínicos y factores pronósticos en la hemorragia intracerebral. Rev Neurol 2000 Jul 16-31;31(2):192-198.
Intracerebral hemorrhage represents approximately 20% of all
strokes. In spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage the essential etiological factor
is arterial hypertension, and the most frequent site the putamen and lobes of the
cerebrum (lobar hematoma). The mortality is higher than in cerebral infarct,
although the long-term prognosis is similar. DEVELOPMENT: We review the most
relevant forms of presentation and clinical findings of intracerebral hemorrhage
in adults, which show a combination of symptoms common to all types of hematoma
and those symptoms which depend on their site. We also analyse the factors and
studies which have sought to recognize variables predicting morbimortality.
