Hemorrhagic Stroke: Aggressive Management and Optimal Outcomes
Learning ObjectivesAt the completion of this program, you will be able to:
- Analyze pathophysiology of hemorrhagic stroke and correlate with neurological assessment findings.
- Appraise intravascular embolization of aneurysm/AVM lesion and operative intervention as therapeutic techniques for hemorrhagic stroke.
- Evaluate clinical management techniques to minimize neuronal loss following hemorrhagic stroke.

The purpose of this session is to analyze the pathophysiologic processes of hemorrhagic stroke with clinical and neurodiagnostic findings, as well as appraising clot removal, managing brain edema and catheter-directed embolization for aneurysm, and arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Brain edema, inflammation, hydrocephalus, and intracranial hypertension (ICH) are linked with mechanism-specific interventions including hemicraniectomy, metabolic suppression, and ventricular drainage. Patient selection for embolization versus open craniotomy is analyzed. Pharmacologic control of blood pressure and the selection for beta and calcium channel blockade and vasodilating agents are analyzed using case studies. Case studies illustrate hemorrhagic stroke management including embolization, craniotomy,
