The Brown-Robert-Wells(BRW) stereotactic system has many advantages in the supratentorial spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage(ICH), but is has less accessibility to the spontaneous cerebellar hemorrhage by stereotactic suboccipital approach. To overcome this disadvantage, we have tried to treat stereotactically three patients of spontaneous intracerebellar hemorrhage through tentorium using BRW stereotaxis and gradual irrigation wth urokinase(UK). This new approach has been used successfully under the local anesthesia with satisfactory postoperative neurological results. We present a detailed technique of this approach.
Key Words: Cerebellar hemorrhage; Stereotatic aspiration; Transtentorial approach; Brown-Roverts-Wells system; Urokinase irrigation
