  Purpose
Cerebral vasospasm(CVS) after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) results in a considerable amount of transient or even permanent neurological deficits and poor outcome of the patients. Transluminal Balloon angioplasty (TBA) or intraarterial application of vasodilators represents a rescue therapy for severe CVS. Indication, duration and efficacy of this treatment, however, is still under debate. Aim of the study is to investigate if such a rescue treatment can significantly reduce new delayed ischemic cerebral deficits after SAH. Hypothesis is that the occurance of delayed infarcts can be reduced by repetetive intraarterial therapy to more than 50 %.

Further study details as provided by Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • New infarcts between baseline and final MRI [ Time Frame: 21 + - 7 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical outcome (mRS, Karnofsky) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

Estimated Enrollment: 92
Study Start Date: August 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: invasive
After proof of perfusion relevant CVS in interventional therapy should be performed as best possible combination from TBA and intraarterial vasodilators additional to the conventional treatment.
Other: Combination of TBA and intraarterial application of vasodilators
In the invasive arm CVS should be treated by intraarterial therapy and efficacy controlled by CT or MRI after 48 hours and if necessary repeated.
No Intervention: conventional
After proof of perfusion relevant CVS only conventional treatment should be performed (no intraarterial therapy).
Other: Combination of TBA and intraarterial application of vasodilators
In the invasive arm CVS should be treated by intraarterial therapy and efficacy controlled by CT or MRI after 48 hours and if necessary repeated.
