    Background Aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (ASH) with intracerebral hematoma (ICH) has a poor prognosis. The treatment is to secure the aneurysm and do an ICH evacuation. Objective The aim of the study was to determine if aneurysm coiling followed by ICH evacuation is a viable alternative...
