The Therapeutic Methods for Cerebral Vasospasm
Vasospasm of cerebral vessels is known to occur between the 4th and 14th days following the rupture of a cerebral aneurysm, and to lead to ischemic symptoms of varying severity, sometimes to death. A variety of therapies have been employed to treat such vasospasm, but little success has been achieved. In the present paper, we discuss our current therapeutic techniques and recent results, based upon our experiences of direct operations on more than 2000 cases of ruptured cerebral aneurysm.
