Adult-onset intraventricular hemorrhage is a potentially life-threatening condition associated with a high morbidity and mortality rates. Intraventricular hemorrhage remains one of the most challenging entities for neurosurgeons to treat. Various medical and surgical modalities have been employed for the management of this entity with variable success and complications rates. In this paper, we review the neurosurgical interventions for the management of intraventricular hemorrhage and describe new approaches and potential therapeutic modalities for the management of this devastating condition.
