STICH

Acronym for Surgical Trial in Intracerebral Haemorrhage, an international randomised trial designed to compare the results of early surgery and conservative treatment in cases of spontaneous supratentorial haematomas. A trial report in 2005 suggested that early surgery offered no benefit, but technical advances in surgery are thought likely to challenge this view.
