How to Treat Subarachnoid Hemorrhage?

Medical Treatment:
  • Specialist center with neurointensive care support
  • Coiling: Coils are placed in the aneurysm to prevent further bleeding done by interventional radiologists
  • Clipping: Neurosurgeon clips the aneurysm to prevent rebleeding.
  • Clipping or coiling depends on size, location, and shape of the aneurysm. Coiling is preferred due to lower risk.
  • Nimodipine is used to prevent brain ischemia from spasm. This also can be injected into the affected arteries directly.
  • Pain relief for headache, phenytoin for fits and promethazine for vomiting and nausea.
