Primary spontaneous intra-parenchymal haematomas are associated with high morbidity and mortality and are rarely operated on. The aim of this study is to report the characteristics of primary intra-parenchymal haematomas operated in two neurosurgical centres in Madagascar.
This is a retrospective descriptive and analytical transversal study over a period of 5 years. We collected 32 patient files. The average age was 51.6 years. The sex ratio was 1.66. All patients were hypertensive. The Glasgow score was between 8 and 14 in 56.3%. Motor deficit was identified in 84.4%. Brain MRI was performed in 6.2% and no arteriography was performed. The haematoma was sustentorial in 84.4% and subtentorial in 15.6%. Hydrocephalus was found in 31.2%. The volume of the haematoma was greater than 30 ml in 75%. For cerebellar haematomas, craniectomy with evacuation of the haematoma after a CSF shunt is used. Craniotomy with evacuation of the hematoma for sustentorial hematoma. The mortality rate was 40.6%. The mRS score was 0-2 at 3 months in 29.4%. Preoperative GCS greater than 8 was associated with low mortality (p = 0.001).
There is still no consensus on the surgical indication. The decision for surgery must be considered on a case-by-case basis.
