Objective: Cerebral vasospasm (CVS) remains to be one of the substantial causes for bad outcome after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Pathophysiological background may be the hyperreactivity of cerebral arteries to 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT). 5-HT is known to have a distinctive contractile effect in [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
