Predictors of hemorrhage volume and disability after perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Summary of "Predictors of hemorrhage volume and disability after perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage."
The determinants of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) volume and an atypical pattern of blood are not clear. Our objective was to determine if reduced platelet activity on admission and abnormal venous drainage are associated with greater SAH volume.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, Traumatic
Bleeding into the SUBARACHNOID SPACE due to CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA. Minor hemorrhages may be asymptomatic; moderate to severe hemorrhages may be associated with INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION and VASOSPASM, INTRACRANIAL.
Hemorrhage within the orbital cavity, posterior to the eyeball.
Intraocular hemorrhage from the vessels of various tissues of the eye.
Hemorrhage following any surgical procedure. It may be immediate or delayed and is not restricted to the surgical wound.
BACKGROUND: Nonaneurysmal perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) has usually a benign prognosis and uneventful course; however, recent reports suggest that these patients may develop severe s...
Hypovolemia is common after subarachnoid hemorrhage, and fluid imbalance negatively affects clinical outcome. Standard bedside volume measures fail to adequately assess fluid status after subarachnoid...
BACKGROUND: This study aimed to determine the value of digital subtraction angiography (DSA) for the detection of causative vascular lesions in patients with perimesencephalic subarachnoid hemorrhage...
BACKGROUND: Cavernous angiomas are responsible for intracranial hemorrhages, but bleeding is infrequently confined to the subarachnoid space. METHODS: We describe an elderly, yet healthy man who sough...
BACKGROUND: A pretruncal subarachnoid hemorrhage has been accepted as a "benign" entity. Here we present two patients with delayed cerebral infarction following pretruncal subarachnoid hemorrhage. MET...
To determine whether HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor simvastatin prevents or ameliorates subarachnoid hemorrhage-induced delayed vasospasm and its ischemic consequences.
The purpose of this study is to determine if giving blood transfusions to anemic patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage will reduce their chances of having a stroke from vasospasm.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the tolerability and safety of 25 percent human albumin therapy in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage.
The 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors, known as statins, have recently been demonstrated to improve endothelial function. Additionally, numerous studies...
Our primary objective is to compare two treatment options for prevention of seizures following a subarachnoid hemorrhage and determine if a short-course regimen of levetiracetam is as effi...
