Abstract:Introduction: Sudden onset of a neurologic deficit that is attributable to a focal vascular cause is defined as Stroke. Stroke is the second leading cause of death worldwide and one of the leading causes of disability.
Methodology: A Prospective study including patients attending outpatient department and inpatients of medicine were included in the study. The study was carried out in RVM Hospital, Siddipet district, Telangana state over a period of one year from July 2019 to July 2020.With sample size of 50 patients.
Results: In this study among 50 cases, 27 are males (54%) and 23 are females (46%). The mean age is 54.64+12.78 (SD).It was observed that males suffered ICH at younger age compared to females with P-value of 0.041. Basal ganglion is the commonest site involved (32%), followed by lobar (30%), thalamus (16%), cerebellum (12%) and brainstem (10%).
Conclusion: Hypertension is found to be the major risk factor for stroke and Low GCS score, large volume of hematoma and midline shift are found to be strong predictors of poor prognosis in ICH patients.
