Asian/Pacific Islander patients were more likely and Hispanic patients less likely to die of a subarachnoid hemorrhage Race or ethnicity can be a significant clue in the United States as to who will survive a kind of stroke known as a subarachnoid hemorrhage and who will be discharged to institutional care, a new study has found. Compared to Caucasians, Asian/Pacific Islander patients were more likely and Hispanic patients less likely to die of a subarachnoid hemorrhage, or SAH, while...

Subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) is one of the most devastating cerebrovascular catastrophes causing death in 40 to 50% of the cases. The most common cause of SAH is a rupture of an intracranial aneurysm. If the aneurysm is found, it can be treated before the possible rupture. However, some intracranial aneurysms will never rupture – the problem is that the doctors don't know which aneurysms will and which will not. So, they don't know which patients should be treated and who can safely be...

[ Watch the Video: Vanderbilt Scientists Employ Robotics to Fight Brain Clots ] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online When a vein or artery in the brain bursts, the resulting blood leak causes an intracerebral hemorrhage. The pressure on the brain from the hemorrhage can cause severe damage and even death in 40 percent of cases. In an effort to reduce the damage caused by an intracerebral hemorrhage, a team of researchers from Vanderbilt University has developed a new...
