The article examines the effectiveness of recombinant factor VIIa for the treatment of intracerebral hemorrhage. A brief description of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is presented, along with its risk factors. The article discusses the evidence and consequences of hematoma expansion. Research shows that recombinant factor VIIa is effective in preventing hematoma expansion.
