30 patients with a hypertensive intracerebral hematoma were treated by stereotactic evacuation between 1986 and 1988. There were 20 males and 10 females; their ages ranged from 37 to 78 years. The time interval from onset to operation was in 16 patients 24 days and in 14 patients 2-7 days. In 19 patients the hematoma was found in the internal capsule, in 5 in the cerebellum, in 4 in the subcortex, and in 2 in the brain stem. The operation was performed with a Leksell computed tomography guided stereotactic apparatus and a Backlund hematoma evacuator. More than 80% of the hematoma could be aspirated in 20 patients and 60-80% in 10. 29 patients are alive, and 1 patient died.
