Maybe because if they can control th bleeding without surgery it would be better. Brain surgery is not a walk in the park and benifits have to outweigh the risks. Not only yhat but before they do surgery its helpful to find the cause. If its a clot that ruptured the vessel and the clot has moved repairing the rupture may cause another rupture somewhere else.
