Due to the considerable changes that have evolved in aneurysm surgery and treatment of SAH since the seventies, also the neuropsychological studies completed before that time are not comparable to later investigations. It is sensible, therefore, to present and to discuss the former apart from the more recent studies, conducted since the late nineteen seventies. Based on the substantial differences between the individual clinical departments, it can neither be taken for granted, however, that in all studies published since the nineteen eighties, microneurosurgical methods have been used consistently, nor that the respective units are comparable in terms of surgical, pharmacological and intensive care management of SAH.
