There is relative clear agreement that after a subarachnoid hemorrhage an aneurysm demonstrated in patients in a good general condition should be operated on as rapidly as possible. Despite a good initial condition and an operation without any complications, patients in whom there are appreciable deteriorations or a fatal outcome after the operation which cannot be explained at present are observed time and again.
