Mild Prolonged Hypothermia for Large Intracerebral Hemorrhage
Neurocritical Care , 08/08/2012
Staykov D et al. – The data support the promising results of the first case series on therapeutic hypothermia (TH) in large intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). TH prevents the development of perihemorrhagic edema (PHE) and its complications. Side effects of TH appeared often, but could be treated sufficiently. Therefore, TH might represent a new therapy for PHE after large ICH, but has to be further tested in randomized trials.
