OBJECTIVE To explore surgical management of intracranial hemorrhage in infants. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted of the clinical data of 22 infants with intracranial hemorrhage resulting from late-onset vitamin K-deficiency. RESULTS All the patients were cured by surgical approach with minimal invasion for the clearance of intracranial hematoma, on the basis of pediatric diagnosis and treatment protocols. CONCLUSION Minimally invasive surgery used to clear intracranial hematoma may minimize the sequela in the nerve system and reduce the mortality of intracranial hemorrhage in infants.
