Cerebral Stroke

Hemorrhagic Stroke

A hemorrhagic stroke is also called an intracerebral hemorrhage, or an ICH. An ICH occurs when a blood vessel ruptures and blood accumulates in the tissue around the rupture. This puts pressure on the brain and causes a loss of blood in the surrounding areas.

The long-term survival rate prognosis is significantly better among the younger patients, without hypertension, alcohol intake and diabetes mellitus.
