A retrospective study of predictors of poor outcome in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage

Takeaway

  • Worsened outcome following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) correlates with older age, brain-destructive hemorrhage and Evan’s index (EI) ≥0.3.

Why this matters

  • A proportion of patients with poor grade subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) have positive outcomes, this study investigates the factors related to poor grade subarachnoid hemorrhage and pre-operative prognostic factors.
