  • SummaryThe authors describe the technique and explain the reason for the use of an intravascular balloon catheter technique in the treatment of vasospasm in cases of subarachnoid haemorrhage due to rupture of a cerebral aneurysm.In 33 patients with SAH 105 major cerebral arteries were dilated (in the system of internal carotid and basilar arteries). Only in one case vasodilatation could not be accomplished. The effect of dilatation of vasospastic arteries was stable and the functional state of… CONTINUE READING
