Improving prognostic accuracy for patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage

Takeaway

  • Optic nerve sheath diameter, together with clinical grading scales, may predict neurological outcomes in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH).

Why this matters

  • Neurological outcomes are poor for patients with poor-grade SAH, more accurate prognosis could guide physicians in their management. Recent data suggest that early aggressive treatment, in particular, might improve neurological outcomes.
