Copeptin levels and hypernatremia after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage – predicting early diabetes insipidus centralis

K. Beseoglu, J. Perrin, H.J. Steiger & D. Hänggi
Objective: Diabetes insipidus centralis with hypernatremia is a common phenomenon after aneurismal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) known for adverse effects on outcome. Possible underlying pathomechanism is a hypothalamic dysregulation through direct injury to the anterior hypothalamic nuclei. In this[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
