will an intraventricular hemorrhage be reabsorbed on it's own?

Yes: Typically, a subarachnoid hemorrhage will circulate through the cerebrospinal fluid and gradually and steadily disappear on imaging studies, and eventually be undetectable in spinal fluid. However, a consequence of such blood degradation products might be low pressure hydrocephalus due to clustering and obstruction of outflow areas. Most pts recover, but a number may have this complication.

What treatment is given for brain haemorrhage?

Cause dependant: Treatment of hemorrhage is cause dependant, hypertensive hemorrhages are almost always treated medically, with BP control & seizure prophylaxis, if needed. Subarachnoid hemorrhage from an aneurysm is typically coiled or surgically clipped. Large traumatic hemorrhages, epidural and subdural hemorrhages need surgical evacuation. Hemorrhages associated with tumors are unique and tumor dependant.

What exactly is subdural hemorrhage?
3 doctor answers • 4 doctors weighed in
Neurology 17 years experience
Blood abutting brain: Subdural hemorrhage is bleeding between the inner and middle layers of the tissues wrapping the brain. It can be secondary to trauma or occur spontaneously, especially in patients with significant brain atrophy. Depending on size and rate of growth they can often be managed conservatively, but sometimes require neurosurgical drainage.

A 39-year-old member asked:
Why does subdural hemorrhage cause headaches?

Increased pressure: When a subdural hemorrhage occurs, the blood flows and first puts pressure on the soft tissues of the brain until they are fully compressed. The blood pressure then fills the dura mater, the tough sac that surrounds the brain. We think it is actually this stretching that is causing the headache. The pressure on the brain tissues causes the damage.

See an OB/GYN: No it is not normal, particularly if this is a change from your usual menstrual periods. Please see you ob/gyn and be examined.
