Abstract

The outcome at three months after aneurysmal SAH in a group of older patients and a group of younger patients is compared. The patients were admitted within 72 hours of Their SAH. Of 61 patients 66 years of age and older, comprising 13% of the whole patient group, 52% died, 12% remained dependent and 36% became independent. In the younger group, 55% had an independent outcome (p < 0.01). In contrast to what we expected in the older patient group, not extracranial, but intracranial events (re-bleeds, infarcts, hydrocephalus) were by far the most frequent cause of deterioration.
