Minimally invasive image‑guided endoscopic evacuation of intracerebral haemorrhage

Acta Neurochirurgica (2023) 165:1597–1602

Minimally invasive endoscopic hematoma evacuation (MEHE) is an emerging surgical technique for treating spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral haemorrhage (SSICH). Multiple studies, analysing whether the outcome after such a procedure is improved, are still ongoing.

Method We herein present the indications, advantages, and perioperative considerations for the surgical technique of MEHE applied at our institution.

Conclusion MEHE with a view through a transparent brain access device is a valid and safe approach for the surgical evacuation of SSICH.
