Conference paper


Recently, 821 workable records have been analyzed concerning patients admitted in la Pitié Hospital from 1 January 1972 to 1 January 1987 [10]. Operations were performed by a group of 5 neurosurgeons using the operating microscope, and aneurysmal necks were closed with Aesculap clips under a mean arterial pressure between 60 and 30 mmHg. We began to use CT scan in October 1977 and, at the same time, medicalized transportation of the patients was available day and night in the Paris area.
