The importance of the microcirculation following subarachnoid hemorrhage

Abstract :

Subarachnoid hemorrhage is a common form of stroke that often involves delayed and sustained ischemia, which is a major cause of death and neurological disability in patients surviving cerebral aneurysm rupture. Neurological deficits commonly include memory changes and impairments in executive function, associated with hippocampal volume loss. Common causes include vasoconstriction at a large cerebral vessel level, hydrocephalus, infections, and treatment related strokes. In many cases, despite none of these being present, patients still have disability. Little is known about lesser known causes of morbidity including the small parenchymal arterioles and the regulation of CSF flow. We will discuss alternative lesser known causes of poor outcome following an SAH.
