Treatment of haemorrhagic stroke

A variety of specific treatments designed to reduce intracranial pressure is often used for primary intracerebral haemorrhage, including osmotic agents such as mannitol, urea or glycerol, steroids or hyperventilation; unfortunately there is no convincing evidence that these treatments improve outcome. In view of the lack of evidence, we do not routinely use any specific medical therapy in haemorrhagic stroke, nor do we routinely use invasive devices, such as intraventricular catheters, to measure intracranial pressure directly. We would attempt to correct or reverse any clotting abnormality, including those patients on oral anticoagulant drugs, although this depends on the original indication for the anticoagulants (for example, prosthetic heart valves).
