German term or phrase: Gehirnmassenblutung
In a text concerning the risk of vasospasm in stroke patients:

"Das erhöhte Vasospasmus-Risiko tritt nach einer Subarachnoidalblutung (SAB) oder nach einer Gehirnmassenblutung auf."

Is "cerebral hemorrhage/brain hemorrhage" OK for this or should it be something more specific?

agree  Kcda: I would chop off the word "massive" there is no indication in the source sentence stating the bleeding is of such an extent! The word masse here is crudely to be understood as "brain matter" or grey matter. Otherwise suggestion is okay!

  -> Thanks, Kcda ;-)

agree  MMUlr: Kcda is right IMO, as I61.9 (ICD-10) is German Hirnmassenblutung, English *Intracerebral hemorrhage*.

disagree  Sabine Wilms, Ph.D.: I think it is wrong to translate "Masse" hier as "massive." This sentence specifically refers to two types of cerebral hemorrhaging: subarachnoid and intracerebral.
