Calcium antagonists are being investigated for their role in preventing or ameliorating the vasospasm associated with subarachnoid hemorrhage. We have done a phase I and phase II type trial of diltiazem. No effect on spasm was documented. A tendency to increase the bleeding time was noted, but no detrimental clinical effect occurred. The rebleed rate was not changed. It appears that further study of diltiazem through a proper randomized study would not be cost- or time-effective.
