abstract

  • Intracranial haemorrhage (ICH) is a devastating cause of stroke. Although the total incidence of ICH has remained stable worldwide, the proportion associated with the use of anticoagulant medications is increasing. Innovative interventions developed to improve patient outcomes often require peri-procedure anaesthetic management. This non-systematic review examines the pathophysiology of ICH at a clinical level, reports on novel therapeutic interventions, many of which are currently in clinical trials, and reviews the current published recommendations for the management of patients with ICH. © The Author 2014.
