Despite modern diagnostic and operative methods, the mortality and morbidity rates of spontaneous cerebellar hematomas remain very high, i.e., according to a review of the literature as high as 45%. By stereotactic puncture, partial evacuation and fibrinolysis of the remaining hematoma with urokinase, much more favorable results can be achieved. As we could observe in long-term follow-up, only 1 patient out of 15 died within 2 months after operation. The method is effective, easy, exact, without risk and applicable at every age, so that actually there is no comparable alternative way of treatment.
