Abstract Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality in the US, especially among the young. Primary injury in TBI is preventable, whereas secondary injury is treatable. As a result, considerable research efforts have been focused on elucidating the pathophysiology of secondary injury and determining various prognosticators in the hopes of improving final outcome by minimizing secondary injury. One such variable, traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (tSAH), has been… 
Vasospasm in traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Vigilant diagnostic surveillance, including serial head CT’s and the prevention of secondary brain damage due to hypotension, hypoxia, and intracranial hypertension, may be more cost effective than attempting to minimize post-traumatic vasospasm.
Effect of Progesterone Administration in Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
TLDR
This study demonstrated that progesterone did not result in different effects in patients with or without tSAH than those without based on initial brain imaging, and supports previous research findings; t SAH is correlated with more severe injury and worsened outcomes.
Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: A Scoping Review
TLDR
The Helsinki and Stockholm computed tomography scoring systems, in addition to the American Injury Scale, creatinine level, age decision tree, may be valuable tools to use when predicting outcome and death.
Traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage: a scoping review
TLDR
Patients with tSAH associated with mTBI have a very low risk of clinical deterioration and surgical intervention and should be managed conservatively when considering ICU admission and the Helsinki and Stockholm CT scoring systems may be valuable tools to use when predicting outcome and mortality.
Does Isolated Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Affect Outcome in Patients With Mild Traumatic Brain Injury?
TLDR
There was no significant difference in outcome of patients with isolated SAH compared with those with normal CT scan groups 1 year after injury, and the telephonic Glasgow Outcome Scale–Extended, Rivermead Post-Concussion Symptoms Questionnaire (RPCSQ), and RHFUQ scores were used to assess outcome after 1 year of injury.
Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Prevalence and Its Association with Short-Term Outcome in Pediatric Severe Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Subarachnoid hemorrhage was present in almost half of pediatric sTBI patients, and it was indicative of TBI severity and a higher level of care on discharge, but SAH in pediatric patients was not independently associated with increased risk of mortality.
Diagnosis and Management of Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Protocol for a Scoping Review.
TLDR
This scoping review will serve as an initial step in providing more evidence for health care professionals, economists, and policymakers so that they might devote more resources toward this significant problem affecting both health and economic outcomes worldwide.
The puzzle of spontaneous versus traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage
TLDR
All available literature regarding these two types of SAH were reviewed and differences were made keeping in mind the utility of the same to a general physician so that rapid and informed decisions can be made at that level.
Efficacy of decompressive craniectomy in the management of intracranial pressure in severe traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The current state of DC - including appropriate injury classification, surgical techniques, concurrent medical therapies, mortality and functional outcomes - is presented and recommendations for early DC to treat refractory ICP elevations in malignant middle cerebral artery syndrome are reported.
Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
In this chapter, the classification, pathophysiology, and critical care treatments now considered as best practices for the management of TBI are described.

[Traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage in acute severe head injury].
TLDR
The lower GCS scores, the more frequently TSAH was identified, and 67% of the patients had a GCS of 6 or less, and TSAH appears to be seen in all age groups, but especially in middle age groups.
Factors Associated with Neurological Outcome and Lesion Progression in Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Patients
TLDR
The outcome of patients with tSAH at admission is related in a logistic regression analysis to the admission Glasgow Coma Scale score and to the amount of subarachnoid blood, thus linking poor outcomes and CT changes.
The significance of subarachnoid hemorrhage after penetrating craniocerebral injury: correlations with angiography and outcome in a civilian population.
TLDR
Increase vigilance on the part of the physician and examination of angiography in high-risk patients should allow for enhanced outcome, and can be assumed that the incidence of traumatic intracranial aneurysm is equal in military and civilian populations, given the absence of penetrating shrapnel injury.
Impact of traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage on outcome in nonpenetrating head injury. Part I: A proposed computerized tomography grading scale.
TLDR
The authors conclude that the CT grading scale is simple and reliable and relates significantly to outcome at the time of discharge from acute hospitalization.
Traumatic Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Demographic and Clinical Study of 750 Patients from the European Brain Injury Consortium Survey of Head Injuries
TLDR
The findings for an unselected series of patients confirm the view that death among patients with tSAH is related to the severity of the initial mechanical damage, rather than to the effects of delayed vasospasm and secondary ischemic brain damage.
The influence of traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage on prognosis of head injury.
TLDR
Early drainage of bloody cerebrospinal fluid by lumbar puncture is an effective method for prevention and treatment of complications in mild head injury.
Traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage as a predictable indicator of delayed ischemic symptoms.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage, especially if massive, is a predictable indicator of delayed ischemic symptoms.
Clinical significance of traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage.
The clinical significance of traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (TSAH) was studied in 20 head-injured patients. They were classified into mild (9) and severe (11) groups by their initial Glasgow Coma
[Traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage].
TLDR
One hundred and ninety-seven cases with closed head injury were encountered from April 1980 to December 1982 and computerized tomography scans suggested that subarachnoid hemorrhage was produced by shear strain at the craniocervical junction due to hyperextension of the head or by impact at the tentorial notch.
[Traumatic basal subarachnoid hemorrhage].
TLDR
The injury is most often sustained by a blow with a clenched fist against the posterolateral part of the cranial basis, but the injury may also occur in relation to an accident.
