Abstract

In contrast to the results from the overall trial, which found no difference between early and delayed surgery, results were best in North American centers when surgery was planned between days 0 and 3 after subarachnoid hemorrhage. These findings argue strongly for early diagnosis and referral for surgical intervention of North American patients suspected of having a ruptured cerebral aneurysm.
