Surgical treatment of primary intracerebral hemorrhage- Part 1: new angiographical classification.
A new angiographical classification of primary intracerebral hemorrhage is presented. We have clarified the predilection sites of intracerebral hemorrhage and the advancing direction of the hematoma by studying autopsy cases. Furthermore, we tried to detect the presence or absence of destruction of the internal capsule and ventricular rupture by means of angiography. Our classification, introducing the idea of dynamic changes of hematoma advancement from localized to advanced type, can be applied to clinical practice. This classification, along with the patient's level of consciousness, it felt to be the most important indication for operation.
