Answer

Other prognostic factors include the following:

  • Nonaneurysmal perimesencephalic stroke has a less severe clinical course and, in general, a better prognosis

  • The presence of blood in the ventricles is associated with a higher mortality rate; in one study, the presence of intraventricular blood at presentation was associated with a mortality increase of more than 2-fold

  • Patients with oral anticoagulation-associated intracerebral hemorrhage have higher mortality rates and poorer functional outcomes
