U. Schneider, S. Dreher, P. Schmiedek, H. Kasuya & P. Vajkoczy
Objective: Nicardipine prolonged release implants (NPRI) have been shown to decrease the incidence of cerebral vasospasm and infarcts significantly in patients after aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) following microsurgical clipping. Yet, the comparison to results after endovascular coiling [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
