Russo A.

Pronto Soccorso Chirurgico Presidio Ospedaliero Leopoldo Parodi Delfino ASL ROMA G, Roma


Brain hemorrage, either traumatic or not, represents an unusual but hard matter in clinical practice, at the same time. The need of a rapid therapeutic approach, avoiding irreversible neurological damages, makes instrumental and radiological effort a necessary diagnostic instrument, to support clinical examination, often mimicking ischemic disease. In spite of medical branches, treating stroke, surgery represents the only device for bleeding lesions, though it’s characterized by a variable functional response and mortality rate.
Anatomic and clinical aspects, particularly regarding the withdrawal of differential diagnosis, risk factors, diagnostic iter and outcomes of 170 patients, ranging from 9 to 97 years of age, are presented. Practical problems, involving the transport of this kind of subjects to specialistic department, are described too.
