The indications for operation in spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) are often questionable, especially in typical white-matter or basal ganglia hemorrhages in stroke patients where spontaneous resorption may yield a better functional result than an acute operation (9). However, any delay in the operation until clinical signs of decompensation appear, adversely affects the prognosis by additional brain compression.
