What is intracerebral hemorrhage grading system?

Risk stratifying. There are a number of ich grading scales that are used to to stratify risk upon presentation and assist in prognosis. Components of the scales vary but include age, volume of the hemorrhage, location of the hemorrhage, glasgow coma scale, and other parameters. All require neuroimaging to assist in the evaluation.

What is intracerebral hemorrhage cause in fetus?

FNAIT, tumors, TTTS. Fetal/neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (fnait - i.e. Low platelets in fetal circulation), intracranial tumors/malformations, rare fetal infections, direct trauma, twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (ttts) and coagulation disorders of the fetus can all cause intracerebral hemorrhage in utero. The outcomes vary from practically normal to very poor. See http://women. Texaschildrens. Org/fetalcenter/.

How long can you live with an intracerebral hemorrhage?

Depends. Some people may not have any residual deficits if the bleeding is small. If they have a large bleed affecting their mental status, if they have comorbid conditions, they may have a shorter life span. The question has to be individualized, but difficult to predict accurately.
Location and size. The location and the size of the intracerebral hemorrhage as well as the interventions done can affect the outcome. Also the co-morbidities (ie. Other medical problems) will affect longevity. Surgically, these may be removed (depending on location) and the brain pressure may be controlled. Outcome and survival depends on the nature of the collateral damage from the bleed.

What is the definition or description of: intracerebral hemorrhage?

Bleeding in the brai. Bleeding in the brain is classified into intra axial and extra axial subtypes ich its an intra-axial hemorrhage characterized by blood in the brain parenchyma (brain tissue, bruise) ich can be caused by accelerating-decelerating trauma, or spontaneous hemorrhage, spontanouse hemorrhage can be caused by hemorrhagic stroke, rupture of an aneurysm, avm, and others, risk factors are hypertension, diab.

My mum just had intracerebral hemorrhage past 2 months, followed by hydrocephalus, current gcs score is 8, just want to know my mum recovery chance?

Define recovery. If your question regards the probability that your mom will be back to herself, the likelihood is low, given what you've written. She may very well live but after 2 months and a current gcs of 8, it is unlikely she will ever be able to live alone or take car of herself.

Can isosorbide trinitrate (iv) given to pat. With hypertensive crisis and intracerebral hemorrhage?

Nitrates, Yes... I'm not familiar with isosorbide trinitrate, but nitrates, Nitroglycerin and nitroprusside are one of many treatments used for hypertensive crises when control of blood pressure is essential.

Intracerebral Hemorrhage I am worried I will have one my doctor had trouble treated my high blood pressure for 2 years. I am 27 is this common?

Hypertension. Increases the risk. Really high (> 200 systolic, > 120 diastolic) BP increases it more. Family history increases it about 10 fold. But.... lifetime risk just isn't very high; low with treated blood pressure. A CT of the head can show if there is a vessel at risk of blowing up (aneurysm); but many hemorrhages occur in strokes without a prior aneurysm.
