Clinical analysis and review were made on the 65 aneurysmal patients who had intraventricular hemorrhage(IVH) confirmed on preoperative brain CT among a total of 268 patients operated on intracranial aneurysms. The study was made on aneurismal sites, the severity of IVH, postoperative ventricular dilatation and the result of treatment. The frequency of IVH among the 268 aneurysmal patients with direct clipping was 24.3%. Aneurysms originated from anterior communicating artery had the highest frequency(49.2%), followed by from posterior communicating artery(15.4%). On the severity of IVH, the frequency of severe IVH was 49.2%, the highest. The second was mild IVH, 32.3%. Forty five percent accounted for ventricular dilatation. By ventricular size index, mild dilatation was 7.7%;moderate, 13.8%;and severe dilatation, 20%. 11 patients(16.9%) undersent CSF shunting procedure. The treatment for the 65 aneurysmal patients with IVH ended in:survivor, 58 patients(98.3%), good recovery, 32.3% and 7 deaths, the rate of mortality was 10.7%.
