Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is most commonly caused by rupture of an intracranial aneurysm (IA), and is associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. Although pre-, intra-, and postoperative treatments have improved, there is still a poor overall outcome for patients with SAH. Because there does not appear to be any proven method for cerebral protection, maintenance of adequate perfusion pressure and the avoidance of hyperglycemia seem to be the most relevant factors to be controlled by the anesthesiologist.
