BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The results of previous studies suggest that early goal-directed fluid therapy (EGDT) reduces delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI) after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage, but the effects of EGDT on clinical outcomes are still unclear. This study aimed to determine whether EGDT improves outcomes compared with standard less-invasive hemodynamic therapy. METHODS This study included 160 patients treated within 24 hours after subarachnoid hemorrhage, randomized to receive… CONTINUE READING
