Intracerebral Haemorrhage with Associate Professor Nawaf Yassi
Thanks to Dr John Williamson for lending us this episode that he recorded for another clinically-focused neurology podcast - Neuropodcases.
Listen in as he chats with Associated Professor Nawaf Yassi about intracerebral haemorrhage. They discuss hypertensive ICH, intraventricular extension, amyloid ICH, role of surgery, how to approach antithrombotics and ICH in younger patients. It's a fascinating conversation with plenty of clinical pearls.
We would highly encourage you to have a look at John's podcast over at https://www.neuropodcases.co.uk/ where you will also find imaging referred to in this podcast.
