Timing and Risk Factors in Surgery of Ruptured Cerebral Aneurysms
The decision whether to operate or not in cases with ruptured cerebral aneurysms in the acute stage is still a controversial problem [1, 2, 5, 6]. Since the beginning of 1970, microsurgery has been utilized in our operations on cerebral aneurysms and we have actively performed early operations after rupture. In this paper, we will analyze 248 consecutive cases of ruptured cerebral aneurysms admitted within one week after subarachnoid hemmorhage (SAH) and detail the risk factors producing unfavorable surgical results.
