Ninety consecutive cases of hypertensive intracerebral haematoma were treated with CT guided stereotactic evacuation. The patients were composed of 61 males and 29 females, ranging from 42 to 87 years old. The location of haematoma was either in the putamen (59 cases) or in the thalamus (31 cases). The average volume of the evacuated haematoma was 21.4 ml in the putaminal haematoma and 14.0 ml in the thalamic haematoma. Postoperative follow-up study in 46 patients showed good recovery of neurological deficits both in putaminal and thalamic group. Criteria of surgical indication of CT-guided stereotactic evaluation of intracerebral haematoma were advocated based on the author's clinical experience.
