Distribution of delayed ischemic neurological deficits after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage and implications for regional neuromonitoring
Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery, 06/29/2012
Miller CM et al. – Vasospasm related infarction occurs most commonly ipsilateral to or in the same distribution of the ruptured aneurysm. Less anatomical correlation is seen with midline aneurysms. Rupture of posterior circulation aneurysms infrequently results in supratentorial infarction. Decisions regarding placement of regional monitors for the purpose of vasospasm detection should consider this distribution of ischemic risk.
