Incidence and relevant factors for seizures after spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (sICH) is a stroke subtype associated with poor prognosis and high mortality. Seizure is a significant complication of ICH, with incidences ranging from 1.7% to 31% [1, 10, 40]. Regardless of the time from onset to ICH, seizures occurring after ICH and related to the occurrence of ICH are called post-ICH seizures. Post-ICH seizures are a combination of early-onset seizures(those occurring within 1–2 weeks of hemorrhage) and late-onset seizures (those occurring thereafter) [20, 29, 31].
