Controlled trial of an acute stroke unit for intracranial hemorrhage


Phase N/A Results


The 30 day mortality rate was 39% in the acute stroke unit compared with 63% in the general medical wards, and the 1 year mortality rates were 52% and 69%, respectively. There was a difference between the 30 day and 1 year survival curves between the groups (p=0.007 and 0.013, respectively); however, there was no difference in survival between 30 and 365 days.
