ICP Versus Intracranial Compliance Guided Management in SAH

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Oslo University Hospital Identifier:
First received: October 25, 2005
Last updated: January 17, 2011
Last verified: January 2008
The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment guided also by ICP mean wave amplitude improves outcome compared to international standard care in patients with SAH.

Condition Intervention
Subarachnoid Hemorrhage (SAH) Device: ICP mean wave amplitude

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Outcomes Assessor)
Official Title: Intracranial Pressure (ICP) Versus Intracranial Compliance (ICC) Guided Management in Subarachnoid Hemorrhage; - a Prospective, Randomized Trial.

Further study details as provided by Oslo University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All cause mortality and neurological outcome [ Time Frame: 3 and 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Length of stay (ICU, hospital); complications; effect of treatment modalities on mean ICP, CPP, ICP mean wave amplitude. [ Time Frame: Hospital stay ]

Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: November 2005
Study Completion Date: June 2009
Primary Completion Date: February 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: ICP mean wave amplitude
    Appropriate measures when ICP mean wave amplitude is to high, e.g. CSF drainage
Detailed Description:
In this study SAH-patients are randomized to treatment based on international standard care (ICP/CPP guided therapy) or intracranial compliance (ICP mean wave amplitude) guided therapy in addition to ICP/CPP guided therapy. Main outcome variables are survival and neurological outcome after 3 and 12 months.
