Answer

The intracerebral hemorrhage score is the most commonly used instrument for predicting outcome in hemorrhagic stroke. The score is calculated as follows:

  • GCS score 3-4: 2 points

  • GCS score 5-12: 1 point

  • GCS score 13-15: 0 points

  • Age ≥80 years: Yes, 1 point; no, 0 points

  • Infratentorial origin: Yes, 1 point; no, 0 points

  • Intracerebral hemorrhage volume ≥30 cm3: 1 point

  • Intracerebral hemorrhage volume < 30 cm3: 0 points

  • Intraventricular hemorrhage: Yes, 1 point; no, 0 points
