Biospecimen Description:

No specimens are to be retained.


Estimated Enrollment: 15
Study Start Date: June 2010
Detailed Description:

Patients who suffer from a bleeding in the brain (stroke or hemorrhage) often experience secondary complications that can occur up to 2 weeks after the initial bleeding. Complications can include decrease of consciousness, weakness or paralysis, difficulty with speech and language, and worsening of brain damage. These decrease a patient's chances for a good recovery. A brain scan will be used to determine the damage caused by the bleeding, and the brain's electrical activity will be monitored to detect abnormal activity. These measures will be analyzed together with routine medical information to better understand and diagnose complications.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Age 18 to 70 years
  2. World Federation of Neurosurgery (WFNS) grade III-IV, and grade V patients who improve within 24h after ventriculostomy
  3. Diffuse thick or localized thick subarachnoid clot >1 mm on baseline CT (Fisher grade 3-4)
  4. Ruptured saccular aneurysm demonstrated by CT-angiography or DSA
