There have been considerable advancements in the medical and surgical management of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) resulting from the rupture of the intracranial aneurysms in the past three decades. While developments in anesthesia and critical care management and recently introduced neuroprotective agents had a considerable effect on the improvement of the medical treatment strategies, advancements in the microsurgical techniques together with the evolvements in the field of interventional neuroradiology have improved surgical therapy. The aim of this paper is to review some of the recent advancements in the surgical and critical care management.
