Characteristics and prognostic value of acute catecholamine surge in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage
Neurological Research, 07/11/2012
Ogura T et al. – The present findings suggest that sympathetic activation in patients in the acute phase of SAH reflects the severity of subarachnoid hemorrhage, and is closely related to the development of delayed vasospasm, leading to the subsequent immune response and inflammatory reactions. Strategies for suppressing catecholamine at the hyper–acute phase may contribute to vasospasm prevention and improve patient outcome.
