Deep-seated intracerebral spontaneous haematomas (ICHs) pose a neurosurgical challenge in decision-making process as summarised in this review. No studies have been able to demonstrate a significant effect on surgical removal. The challenge to surgical removal is the damage the surgery causes to the healthy brain in connection with the surgical procedure. The application of minimally invasive techniques in the form of endoscopic removal of deep-seated ICHs, results in significantly less "trauma" to the healthy brain and hopefully a better prognosis for patients with deep-seated spontaneous ICHs.
