6 Central Aim of ICESThe central aim of this study is to demonstrate that Intraoperative stereotactic CT-guided Endoscopic Surgery (ICES) is a feasible, safe, and technically effective treatment for patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage.
7 Aim 1Specific Aim 1: To determine that intraoperative stereotactic CT-guided endoscopic surgery results in an immediate reduction in hemorrhage volume by ≥ 66% in 80% of surgically treated patients and to determine strategic methods that ensure successful evacuation.Hypothesis 1: Surgical Technique1a. It will be feasible to use an image guidance method of planning the surgical trajectory that bisects the long axis of the hematoma and ends at the deepest portion of the hematoma, while avoiding eloquent cortex. A formal scoring system will be used to determine a trajectory score based on trajectory and depth.1b. The extent of hematoma volume reduction will be a function of the surgical trajectory score.1c. To determine the minimal suction pressure necessary to obtain maximal hematoma removal.Sub Aim 1: To determine if recurrent bleeding occurs within the immediate post-operative period.Hypothesis for Sub Aim 1: Recurrent bleeding will occur after 1 hour and before 24 hours after surgery.
8 Aim 2Specific Aim 2: To determine that intraoperative stereotactic CT-guided endoscopic surgery has a similar safety and hematoma reduction profile as compared with the MISTIE technique.Hypothesis 2: Outcome Assessment and Comparisons of ICES to MISTIE2a. The percentage of hematoma reduction will be greater for the ICES procedure as compared with MISTIE at 1 hour after surgery.2b. The percentage of hematoma reduction will be greater for the ICES procedure as compared with MISTIE at 24 hours after surgery.2b. The percentage of rebleeding or other immediate surgical complication will be similar between ICES and MISTIE.2c. The mortality rate will be similar between ICES and MISTIE surgical arms.2d. The mortality rate in the surgical arms, ICES and MISTIE, will be lower than that of the medical control arm.2e. The rates of cerebritis and meningitis will be similar between the ICES and MISTIE surgical arms.
9 Sub Aim 2Sub-Aim 2: To determine that intraoperative stereotactic CT-guided endoscopic surgery and MISTIE results in a reduction FLAIR positive edema surrounding the hematoma as compared with medical arm patients.Hypothesis for Sub-aim 2:2f. The presence of a perihematomal FLAIR positive edema will be less than that seen in medical arm patients.2g. There will be no new FLAIR positive tracts along the endoscopy or MISTIE trajectory.
10 Aim 3Specific Aim 3: To develop a endoscopic registry that enables development of innovations in the endoscopic technique and compare the safety of these innovations with the standard endoscopic technique.Hypothesis for Aim 3: Modifications to the endoscopic technique will enable complete evacuation of the hematoma, including intraventricular blood.

15 Genomic profiles of damage and protection in human intracerebral hemorrhage Carmichael et al, JCBFM 20081. Surgical tissue has high quality RNA for gene expression analysis.2. The gene expression differences between peri- hematomal tissue and control tissue are highly significant3. Bioinformatics analysis: Induction of molecular networks of inflammatory chemokine andcytokine signaling and counter-inflammatory networks: annexin and TGFb4. Hemorrhage induces a coordinated down regulation of NMDA receptor and downstream intracellular neuronal signaling pathwaysThis correlates with microdialysis data showing elevated extracellular glutamate in the brain surrounding the ICH (Miller et al 2007)Addresses mechanism of surgical success resulting from less excitotoxic edema
16 Steps in the ICES protocol Initial Evaluation of patient with intracerebral hemorrhage in the emergency departmentInitial CT or MRI of the brainStereotactic CT scan performed ( 6 hour stabilization scan)Additional diagnostic testing based on clinical suspicion: Cerebral Angiogram or CTAInitial treatment with standard of neurocritical care for ICH (Broderick et al, 2007). Decision about placement of external ventricular drain will based on standard of care guidelines (ie intraventricular blood, hydrocephalus, suspected elevated intracranial pressure).Patient and family discussion, consent, and randomization into the study protocol.Preoperative planning using the Stereotactic CT scan that is registered into the image guidance systemICES Operation within 48 hours of bleed onsetNeurointensive care delivered as per standard of careOngoing study activities (imaging, neurologic scoring, etc) in the ICUStructured follow up exam and imagingImages and other data sent electronically to the Surgical Center for quality control and data analysis
