This trial is conducted in Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Oceania, and South America.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the treatment of Recombinant Factor VIIa in patients with acute intracerebral bleeding. It is expected that more patients will recover without severe permanent disability after acute treatment with Recombinant Factor VIIa by reducing further intracerebral bleeding.
