Brain Hemorrhage Surgery Surges Survival Rate, But Disability Peril Is High

Physicians routinely suggest surgery for patients who experience brain hemorrhages near the brain stem an area known as the cerebellum. Nonetheless, an international study showed that while patients who go through the procedure for ICH (intracerebral hemorrhage) survive at greater rates compared to those who do not undergo surgery and they are also at greater menace of significant disability. The new study was conducted by scientists from Yale University and was published in the journal JAMA. An evaluated 35,000 people yearly across the U.S. and Europe suffer from ICH, which is reported by bleeding at the back of the brain nearby the brain stem.

The surgery to decompress or remove the blood is standard procedure, mainly when the area of hemorrhage is big. Fewer studies have been carried regarding the efficiency of surgery correlated to a more traditional approach by medical management. An analysis by an international team of individual patients showed that those who have undergone procedure had a statistically noteworthy higher chance of surviving following 3, 6, and 12 Months; nevertheless, there was no lessening in the scale of disability amongst the surgery patients. The study suggested that certain factors might influence which patients can benefit from surgery and that new methods are needed for this devastating condition.

On a related note, recently, a study showed that brain hemorrhage patients have curable underlying conditions. When there is hemorrhage—or blood vessels in the brain burst—and lead to a stroke, large regions in the brain can be damaged permanently. Depending on the reason, some brain hemorrhages might hide underlying lacerations that can be cured with surgery, radiation, embolization, or other treatments. By the use of MRI scans of patients identified with ICH, clinical scientists at Jefferson analyzed the patients most likely to have a curable underlying condition. The study was published in the Journal of Neurosurgery and will aid physicians in determining which patients should opt for immediate MRI and surgical procedure, and which should be cured with supportive care.
