The appalling mortality from massive hemorrhage into the cerebrum is common knowledge. The Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in 1946 listed this condition as fourth in the cause of death.1
This fact has encouraged neurosurgeons to attempt removal of the clot and control of hemorrhage in selected cases. The results in small series as reported by various neurosurgeons have been encouraging.2-17 This has stimulated the author to operate on a group of carefully selected cases, and then gradually to extend the procedure in some instances to those with grave prognosis with the hope that life might be saved.
