    Background and Purpose: Subarachnoid haemorrhage is a common cause of death in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), but little is known about specific characteristics of subarachnoid haemorrhage and intracranial aneurysms in this group of patients. We performed a...

    Low re-bleeding rates within the first 14 days of aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage are reported in young patients. Furthermore, re-bleeding rate for giant aneurysms does not exceed 20% according to the literature. Our own clinical impression is that the re-bleeding rate seems to be much...

    Cerebral vasospasm is the prolonged, intense constriction of the larger conducting arteries in the sub- arachnoid space which are initially surrounded by subarachnoid clot. Significant narrowing develops gradually over the first few days after the aneurysmal rupture. The spasm usually is maximal...

    Background and purpose The aim of this study was to assess the long term outcome after non-aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). Methods 1154 patients with SAH were treated in our hospital between 1989 and 1999. From this patient population, 97 patients had a non-aneurysmal SAH. All...

  • Relation between size of aneurysms and risk of rebleeding in patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage. Machiel Pleizier, C. M.; Algra, A.; Velthuis, B. K.; Rinkel, G. J. E. // Acta Neurochirurgica;Dec2006, Vol. 148 Issue 12, p1277 

    Background and purpose. Few risk factors have been identified for rebleeding in patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage. We studied whether size of aneurysm after rupture is a risk factor for rebleeding. Since intracranial aneurysms develop during life and may therefore be larger at an older age,...

    Background: Rebleeding is an important cause for mortality following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. Early intervention is believed to reduce the risk of rebleeding. However, in developing countries such as India, early intervention is often difficult due to various reasons. The knowledge...

    Objective. Distal middle cerebral artery (dMCA) aneurysms are very rare with a reported frequency of 2–6%. Typically, patients with ruptured distal MCA aneurysms have poor clinical outcomes because often there is both a subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and an intracerebral haematoma (ICH)....
