Abstract

Objective: Delayed cerebral vasospasm has long been recog-nized as an important cause of poor outcome after an otherwise successful treatment of a ruptured intracranial aneurysm, but it remains a pathophysiological enigma despite intensive research for more than half a century.
Method: Summarized in this review are highlights of research from North America, Europe and Asia reflecting recent advances in the understanding of delayed ischemic deficit.
Result: It will focus on current accepted mechanisms and on new frontiers in vasospasm research.
Conclusion: A key issue is the recognition of events other than arterial narrowing such as early brain injury and cortical spreading depression and of their contribution to overall mortality and morbidity.
