The age-standardized mortality rate for hemorrhagic stroke has decreased worldwide over the past two decades, but incidence, number of deaths, and lost disability-adjusted life-years (DALY) continue to increase. Moreover, hemorrhagic stroke occurs half as frequently globally as ischemic stroke, but causes significantly more deaths and lost DALY. Milestone studies of the past decade - STICH, FAST, and INTERACT2 - indicate the importance of hyperacute care for intracerebral hemorrhage; despite this, there is to date no established strategy for patients analogous to reperfusion therapy for ischemic stroke. This book, written by world-renowned experts, covers all current topics related to the diagnosis and management of intracerebral hemorrhage. It will contribute to an improved understanding of current and future aspects concerning optimal management of patients. This is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource for neurologists, neurosurgeons and trainees.
