Abstract

The purpose of this article is to give an overview of the management of the most common complications encountered during subarachnoid hemorrhage and endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. We reviewed the literature and identified the complications encountered during endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. We report current management strategies of complications associated with subarachnoid hemorrhage and the interventional procedure. Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage remains a devastating condition, with high mortality and poor outcome among survivors. The successful treatment of intracranial aneurysms requires a multidisciplinary approach and the treating physicians need to be aware of predisposing factors for complications, their frequency, and also their management.
