Aims of the Study: The aim was to study the electrocardiographic and two-dimensional echocardiography (2D ECHO) changes in patients of intracerebral hemorrhage and its outcome in terms of mortality. Materials and Methods: Patients admitted to medicine ward and intensive care unit selected for the study. Their electrocardiography (ECG), 2D ECHO, and outcome noted. Results: Mortality was higher in patients of intracerebral bleed having ECG and 2D ECHO changes than those with normal ECGs and 2D ECHO. Conclusion: ECG and 2D ECHO abnormalities are common in patients of intracerebral hemorrhage, and these have prognostic significance in predicting mortality in patients of intracerebral hemorrhage. Thus, every patient of intracerebral hemorrhage should undergo ECG and 2D ECHO examination for the evaluation of cardiac dysfunction occurring in these patients.
