Introduction: Recent evidence suggests that magnesium may be neuroprotective in the setting of cerebral ischemia, and therapeutic magnesium infusion has been proposed for prophylaxis and treatment of delayed ischemic neurological deficit (DIND) resulting from vasospasm in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). We studied the association between serum magnesium levels, the development of DIND, and the outcomes of patients with SAH.Methods: We studied 128 consecutive patients… CONTINUE READING
