Background: Intracranial aneurysm with and without subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) is a relevant health problem: The overall incidence is about 9 per 100,000 with a wide range, in some countries up to 20 per 100,000. Mortality rate with conservative treatment within the first months is 50–60%. About one third of patients left with an untreated aneurysm will die from recurrent bleeding within 6 months after recovering from the first bleeding. The prognosis is further influenced by vasospasm…

TLDR
Outcome of patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (ASAH) has improved, but is still poor; the only treatment strategy to reduce the risk of delayed cerebral ischaemia remains nimodipine; there is no place for statins or magnesium sulphate, nor for lumbar drainage.
A Questionnaire Survey of Management of Patients with Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Haemorrhage in Poland
TLDR
Many discrepancies exist between the available guidelines and clinical practice in aSAH treatment in Poland, and peri-procedural management is poorly standardised.
Intracranial hypertension in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The results of the meta-analysis of mortality rate associated with intracranial hypertension after aSAH found that in several studies, they reported that a high degree of clinical severity scale (Hunt and Hess or WNFS) and tomographic were significantly correlated with the increase in ICP above 20 mmHg.
Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Intracranial Aneurysms
TLDR
This guideline provides practical, evidence-based advice for the management of patients with an intracranial aneurysm, with or without rupture.
Anaesthetic and ICU management of aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage: A survey of European practice
TLDR
Striking variability in the practice patterns of European physicians involved in early treatment of SAH was found and significant differences were noted among countries and between high and low-volume coiling centres.
Management of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: the Last Decade.
TLDR
Medical management for SAH aims to minimize early brain injury, cerebral edema, hydrocephalus, increased intracranial pressure (ICP), and medical complications, and management then focuses on preventing, detecting, and treating DCI.

Follow-up screening after subarachnoid haemorrhage: Frequency and determinants of new aneurysms and enlargement of existing aneurysms
TLDR
The results suggest that intracranial aneurysms should not be considered as a single event in a lifetime but rather as a continuous process.
Corticosteroids for aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage and primary intracerebral haemorrhage.
TLDR
Overall, there is no evidence of a beneficial or adverse effect of corticosteroid therapy in patients with either SAH or PICH.
Guidelines for the Management of Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: A Guideline for Healthcare Professionals From the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
TLDR
Evidence-based guidelines are presented for the care of patients presenting with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage and offer a framework for goal-directed treatment of the patient with aSAH.
Calcium antagonists for aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage.
TLDR
Calcium antagonists reduce the proportion of patients with poor outcome and ischemic neurological deficits after aneurysmal SAH; the risk reduction for case fatality alone is not statistically significant.
Subarachnoid haemorrhage in first and second degree relatives of patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage
TLDR
The cumulative incidence of subarachnoid haemorrhage among first and second degree relatives of patients with recent haem orrhage is studied to determine whether these patients are at increased risk for unruptured intracranial aneurysms.
Impact of Early Surgery on Outcome After Aneurysmal Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: A Population‐Based Study
TLDR
An active treatment policy of subarachnoid hemorrhage including early surgery only marginally improves survival, but the quality of life of the survivors is significantly better.
