Intracranial Hemorrhage


(Depending on size)

  • Intraventricular hemorrhage is bleeding within the cavities of the brain that normally hold clear cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Such bleeding is frequently associated with pre-term delivery and can result in hydrocephalus and loss of brain tissue.
  • Intraparenchymal bleeding is within the brain tissue itself and usually results from ruptured arteriovenous malformation (AVM), hemorrhage following ischemic infarction or hypertension.
  • Subarachnoid hemorrhage usually results from a ruptured surface AVM or cerebral artery aneurysm.
  • Subdural hemorrhage is the result of trauma leading to disruption of bridging veins between the dura and the brain.
