Objective: Intraventricular extension (IVH) of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) was identified as independent predictor of 30-day mortality in previous ICH studies. Untreated acute hydrocephalus may lead to increased ICP with high mortality rates in secondary IVH. To date, no validated clinical grading[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
