It is unclear what threshold for early neurologic deterioration or improvement following intracerebral hemorrhage may predict long-term outcomes for these patients. Using data from the PREDICT and VISTA cohorts, Dr. Yogendrakumar and his team sought to evaluate what change in NIHSS is sufficient to predict long-term disability in patients with ICH. Drs. Yogendrakumar and Dowlatshahi discuss the results of their investigation with Dr. Siegler in this week's episode of the NCS podcast.
