What is Subarachnoid Hemorrhage?
Subarachnoid Hemorrhage is a rare but potentially fatal type of stroke characterized by abnormal bleeding on the brain’s surface within the subarachnoid space. It is often triggered by the rupture of an aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation (AVM), or other underlying medical conditions. One of its hallmark symptoms is a sudden and excruciating headache.

Management / Treatment of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage at IBS Hospital
Various treatment options are available at IBS Hospital for patients with Subarachnoid Hemorrhage:
Surgical Clipping: Surgical clipping involves placing clamps on the aneurysm to control blood flow and prevent rupture.
Coiling (Endovascular Embolization): This procedure employs a catheter to place detachable coils inside the aneurysm, blocking blood flow and reducing the risk of rupture.
AVM Removal Surgery: For patients with small aneurysms in accessible brain areas, surgical removal of arteriovenous malformations may be considered.
Stereotactic Radiosurgery: High-intensity radiation is utilized to correct blood vessel malformations and manage the condition.
Please note that these treatment options depend on the patient’s specific condition and medical evaluation. It’s advisable to consult our medical experts for personalized guidance.
