Identifying patient report outcomes relevant to aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage follow-up.

Abstract

Patients recovered from subarachnoid hemorrhage can be assessed for neuropsychological dysfunction using postal questionnaires. We assessed 214 patients using various tests of memory, mood and strategic thinking. Patients in good outcome categories (modified Rankin Scale [mRS] 0-1) nevertheless exhibited mood disorder (28%), memory deficit and executive dysfunction (20%). Return to work (49%) was most influenced by previous employment status, Rankin scale and mood.
