SUMMARYThe authors report on a patient with a ruptured anterior communicating aneurysm treated surgically on the day following her subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Repeated measurements of cerebral blood flow (rCBF) were carried out using the inhalational Xenon 133 method. Dramatic acute increases in rCBF occurred, coincident with clinical improvement, following mannitol, CSF drainage and dopamine. Later, further elevation to normal levels occurred following ventriculo-peritoneal shunting.
