OBJECTIVE: Although several recent studies have suggested that the incidence of vasospasm after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage is lower in patients undergoing aneurysmal coiling as compared with clipping, other studies have had conflicting results. We reviewed our experience over 8 years and assessed whether clipping, craniotomy, or coiling affects patient outcomes or the risk for vasospasm.
