Abstract

Background and Purpose: Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. This study aimed to explore the risk factors associated with mortality and unfavorable outcome of ICH in Taiwan and to compare the predictive power with the existing ICH scores. Methods: Medical records of the ICH patients consecutively admitted to a regional hospital between January 2003 and December 2006 were reviewed retrospectively. The demographics, outcome, clinical and radiological characteristics were also analyzed. Results: A total of 61 among 285 (21.4%) ICH patients died during hospitalization. Diabetes mellitus, lower scores of initial Glasgow Coma Scale, initial ICH volume >30 ml, and intraventricular hematoma were identified as major independent risk factors associated with in-hospital mortality in the logistic regression model. In comparison to the predictive power for mortality and unfavorable outcome, Barthel Index <40 at discharge, the results showed no significant difference among the scores derived from our study, the ICH score by Hemphill and the modified ICH score developed in Taiwan. Conclusions: Although these ICH scores developed with various measurements, no significant difference in predicting mortality and unfavorable functional outcomes was found. The results supporting the ICH score by Hemphill may provide a good prediction in acute outcome across ethnic groups.
