Nonpharmacologic Therapy

Patients with hemorrhagic stroke are evaluated for surgical treatment of SAH and ICH. In SAH, either clipping of the aneurysm or coil embolization is recommended within 72 hours after the initial event to prevent rebleeding. Coil embolization, also called coiling, is a minimally invasive procedure in which a platinum coil is threaded into the aneurysm. The flexible coil fills up the space to block blood flow into the an-eurysm thereby preventing rebleeding. Surgical removal of the blood in patients with ICH is controversial, as one large randomized trial did not show a benefit to removal compared with those treated conservatively according to the current guidelines.46,47
