Subarchnoid haemorrhage

Vahid Jusufovic, Jasmin Zvornicanin, Zlatko Musanovic, Senada Sarihodzic
PURPOSE: To present a case of Terson's syndrome consequent to ruptured intracranial aneurism treated successfully with a combined therapeutic approach. METHODS: Case report. A 37 year old man was urgently referred to the UCC Tuzla with sudden headache, vomiting and unconsciousness. CT scan showed ruptured aneurism of anterior communicant artery with signs of retinal thickening. Later ocular examination showed the massive bilateral vitreous haemorrhage. RESULTS: Patient was treated with medicamentous therapy for 7 months with no significant improvement...

For the past 50 years the pterional craniotomy has been the standard approach for anterior circulation aneurysms. However, this is a major procedure. As the trend is towards minimally invasive surgery generally, we have been developing a minimally invasive approach for anterior circulation aneurysms - the supraorbital microcraniotomy. We present first 50 patients who underwent this operation after an aneurysmal subarchnoid haemorrhage. The data were collected prospectively between 2001 and 2004. A total of 60 aneurysms were clipped (10 patients had two aneurysms)...

UNLABELLED: What is already known about this subject? The naturally occurring interlukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1RA) markedly protects rodents against ischaemic, excitotoxic and traumatic brain injury, suggesting it may be of therapeutic value. When administered intravenously to patients soon after stroke, IL-1RA is safe and reduces the peripheral inflammatory response. However, IL-1RA is a large protein (17 kDa), which may limit brain penetration, thereby limiting its potential utility in brain injury...

BACKGROUND: Three dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) is a powerful method for depicting intracranial vascular lesions because of its 3D imaging capability. The purpose of this study was to analyse if 3DRA had reduced the incidence of angiogram-negative subarchnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and which type of aneurysm tended to be overlooked with conventional digital subtraction angiography. METHOD: Angiogram-negative SAH was defined as present in those patients with SAH who had no demonstrable lesion revealed by more than two adequate cerebral angiograms...

A group of 107 children with vascular diseases of the nervous system aged 3-14 years have been studied. In 100 children of the study group acute disturbances of the brain blood circulation have been found, out of which 37 children were with transitory ischemic attacks; 29 were found to be with brain ischaemia; 22-with haemorrhages (7 cases with subarchnoidal, 9 cases with intracerebral and 6 cases with subarachnoidal-parenchimatose); 5 children had wenous thromboses; 7 children were with spinal strokes. In other 7 children we found the presence of Sturge-Weber syndrome...

The subarchnoidal haemorrhage is an acute disease which has a high lethality and, therefore, in every case presents an indication for admission into an intensive-therapeutic department. It often occurs in younger age groups and appears more frequently than is assumed in general. Despite impressive clinical symptoms (suddenly beginning stabbing headache, vomiting and disturbances of consciousness of various degree of severity) the picture of the disease is not exactly diagnosed almost in every case. From 1970 to 1974 we treated 105 patients with subarachnoidal haemorrhages...

The radiographic demonstration of contrast medium extravasation from a rupturing intracranial aneurysm is rare. We have detected this occurrence a mere thrice in 15 years, a period in which angiography was routinely used for the investigation of subarchnoid haemorrhage. We have added these three cases to 14 others that were previously reported in the literature and summarised the total. There does not appear to be a common aetiological factor, though further experimental studies on intracaratid pressures distal to the site of injection seem to be warranted...
