Abstract

The results of two different antifibrinolytic therapeutic modalities (A = AMCA 3gm daily + Aprotinin, 3-400000 K.I.U daily, B=AMCA, 6 gm daily) were compared retrospectively in a series of 137 patients harbouring recently ruptured intracranial aneurysms. The rates for rebleeding and thromboembolic complications were similar in both differently treated groups of patients, whilst that for ischaemic complications was significantly (p<0.025) lower in cases managed with modality A. In these also the incidence of hydrocephalus was decreased, although not significantly (0.20>p >0.19). According to these data, low-dose AMCA + Aprotinin seems to be a rational therapeutic combination for cases of ruptured intracranial aneurysms, in which antifibrinolytics are indicated
