The Management of Treatment in Germinal Matrix Originating from Intraventricular Hemorrhage Aim: In this study, it was aimed to investigate retrospectively the neurosurgical surgery methods and their results in 6 patients with intraventricular hemorrhage originating from germinal matrix who were operated in the Brain , six premature patients with intraventricular hemorrhage originating from the germinal matrix were subjected to transfontanel ultrasonography, brain magnetic resonance imaging,

External ventricular drainage system, endoscopic third ventriculostomy, endoscopic septostomy, ventriculo-peritoneal shunt, transarachnoid puncture were performed as surgical procedures to the patients. The patients were followed up with control brain tomography and magnetic resonance imaging at postoperative 1,3 and 6. months. Results: Six patients born between 26 and 32 weeks of gestation were premature and low birth weight. Three of them were boys and three were girls. Only one of the girls was a twin. The birth weight of premature patients whose birth type was cesarean section varied between 900gr and 1825gr. Conclusion: Hydrocephalus due to intraventricular hemorrhages in premature low birth weight babies, it is thought to be better in terms of prognosis following by external ventricular drainage system, ventriculoperitoneal shunt application with planning made in an appropriate timing without preferring endoscopic third ventriculostomy except in mandatory cases until the baby's birth weight exceeds 2000 g.
