Intraventricular hemorrhage after blunt head trauma, which reflects the severity of head injury, is uncommon. A retrospective study of 109 traumatic intraventricular hemorrhage(TIVH) patients who were admitted between January 1, 1988 and December 31, 1993 was conducted. The results are as follows: 1) Incidence of TIVH and its associated mortality were 2.45% and 28.4%, respectively. 2) TIVH-associated radiological abnormalities were traumatic intracerebral hematoma(62.7%), skull fracture(42.7%), and traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage(34.5%). 3) Amount of TIVH was related to traumatic intracerebral hematoma(p=0.0003) and traumatic subarachnod hemorrhage(p=0.0385). 4) The poorest prognostic indicator was associated abnormalities, especially corpus callosum or brainstem hemorrhage(p=0.0099). 5) TIVH-associated hydrocephalus was not related to the amount of TIVH(p=0.42), and poor prognosis(p=0.12). 6) Patients with TIVH showed better Glasgow coma scale and Glasgow outcome scale than TIVH-associated abnormalities.
