Vasospasm as a cause of death and disability has decreased from approximately 35% in the 1970s, to 20% in the 1980s, to 10% currently. --Neil Kassell, Fifth International Conference on Cerebral Vasospasm, 1993. In one of the large cooperative studies reported in 1993, there were 457 patients in a placebo group composed of all neurological grades. Fifty-one percent had angiographic VSP, 46% developed DID, and 18% died. Four percent of deaths were attributed solely to VSP and 10% to multiple causes including VSP.

Only 15% of their 443 patients developed postoperative VSP. VSP lasted 8-24 days, with a mean duration of 14 days. Of patients with VSP, 46% recovered and were working. Thirty patients had operations carried out while VSP was present. 4 days following SAH, and 80% were well and working. Operative mortality and VIII. INFLUENCE OF SURGERY morbidity were closely related to the admission grade of the patient. 6 days from SAH. The range of onset was 4-16 days for both groups. Of 68 patients with preoperative VSP, 52% did well, 24% had a fair result, and 25% died.
