Abstract

Subarachnoid hemorrhage is a formidable and common health care problem. Early diagnosis and management are crucial to reduce the morbidity form this complex and multifaceted disease. Open surgery and endovascular techniques both aim at eliminating the source of hemorrhage. The choice of therapy can be made rationally based on an understanding of the merits, risks, and limitations of each therapy. The care of pregnant patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage and patients who harbor both aneurysms and AVMs can be approached rationally with an understanding of the complex pathophysiology behind these clinical scenarios. Familiarity with the signs of mild SAH, and advances in familial screening, noninvasive imaging, and therapies for vasospasm will continue to lessen the toll of this dramatic illness on the public well- being.
