International patient

Hypertensive bleed is the most common brain hemorrhage mainly caused due to hypertension (rise in blood pressure). It is categorized as per their typical locations which include, basal ganglia hemorrhage, thalamic hemorrhage, pontine hemorrhage and cerebellar hemorrhage. It can affect any part of the brain and if they're larger in sizes, requires instant evacuation. Such patients need to stay for long in intensive care and rehabilitation even after the successful completion of the operation. In many patients with intracranial hemorrhage, there is an underlying vascular maiformation like AVM or Aneurysm which can be diagnosed by a cerebral angiogram. Intracranial hemorrhage may also occur in the subarachnoid space or between brain and skull.
