Hydrocephalus after bleeding in the ventricles or the brain itself does not usually directly contribute to death of a premature infant.  It does, however, raise the risk of long term neurodevelopmental problems.  If there is a massive amount of bleeding and hydrocephalus, the baby may be generally unstable and the long term prognosis may be grim.

Each case is unique, and you should talk with the neonatologist about the particular circumstances for your baby.
