A type of stroke called supratentorial intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) results when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures spontaneously. A study was conducted to examine the benefits of immediate surgery as opposed to close observation. It was found that there was no significant difference in deaths or disability resulting from either method. Although, it was determined that surgery may be more likely to benefit from surgery if their blood clot was near the surface of the brain whereas coma patients were not as likely to benefit from surgery. 20% of all strokes are due to ICH and 40% of ICH patients die with the majority of those who survive being disabled.
