ABSTRACT
In summarizing the ruptured berry aneurysms, we might state: cases with acute subarachnoid hemorrhage should be diagnosed and referred early because cases, which are grades I and II, at first, may progress to grades IV and V, where the operative mortality is high. Hypothemia offers the chance of a slack brain, good visibility in case of rupture and protects against the effects of spasm. However, it has no effect on previous thrombosis, postoperative thrombosis, cerebral edema or cerebral infarction. Of 81 cases where angiography was done early, one patient was made worse by this procedure, and possibly two others were adversely effected.
