Dr. Chandrasekhar Kariketi | Dr. Sirugudi Srinivas | Dr. Immanni Soma Mani Giridhar

Abstract: Background: Intracerebral haemorrhage is the second most common subtype of stroke world-wide, and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The present study was undertaken with the aim of recognizing the various risk factors of haemorrhagic stroke and understanding their relation to the location of bleed on Non- contrast CT scan of the brain in a single study and to compare them with the existing studies. Methods and Findings: A prospective study was done in 108 patients presenting with hemorrhagic stroke, to identify the common risk factors and to correlate them with the location of hemorrhage. The results were analyzed using the chi-square test to find significant correlation between them. Conclusions: Hypertension and smoking were identified as the most important risk factors for hemorrhagic stroke. Non-lobar intracerebral hemorrhage was more common in patients with both hypertension and smoking, especially in the putamen.
