Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Despite decades of aggressive efforts to improve the outcome from ruptured intracranial aneurysms, subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) still carries high morbidity and mortality rates. Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage continues to be a frightening and poorly understood condition, contributing to delays in diagnosis and compromising patient care. Prompt diagnosis followed by aggressive treatment represents the best available method to improve patient outcome. Optimal results depend on rapid medical stabilization of the patient, early aneurysm repair to prevent rebleeding, and prevention of the recognized complications of subarachnoid hemorrhage. This review summarizes recommendations for managing the patient with a ruptured intracranial aneurysm.
