This was a prospective study carried out over a period of six months from March 2018 to August 2018 on Brain computed tomographic findings of 100 hypertensive patients presenting with clinical features of haemorrhagic stroke.
Images were acquired using Prime Acquillion Toshiba Japan 2012 160 slice CT scanner.
ABC formula for CT volume estimation was used.
Binary logistic regression model was used to predict 30 days mortality.Thirty eight patients had small haematoma of < 30mls, while 12 patients had medium size haematoma between 30 to 60mls and 50 patients out of hundred had large size haematoma of > 60mls.
Patients with small volume haematoma were predicted to have sixty times chance of survival than those with moderate and large volume haematoma (OR = 0.6 at 95% CI: 0.72 - 4.75; p = 0.62).
Haematoma sites was found not be statistically significant predictor of mortality (OR = 1.5 at 95% CI: 0.87 – 1.52; p = 0.32).
