The optimal duration of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage after acute aneurysm surgery is unclear. The association between the occurrence of symptomatic vasospasm or late hydrocephalus and the duration of CSF drainage was investigated using multiple logistic analysis in 95 consecutive patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage who underwent surgery within 72 hours after onset. The duration of drainage was significantly related to the occurrence of symptomatic vasospasm and late… CONTINUE READING
