The unchanging pattern of subarachnoid hemorrhage in a community.

Abstract

The average annual incidence of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) from aneurysm rupture in Rochester, Minnesota, has remained remarkably constant at about 11 per 100,000 population. Age-specific incidence increased with age. Survival after SAH depended on: (1) clinical grade, (2) time after onset of SAH, and (3) presence of intracerebral hematoma. Among those who survived to receive medical attention, 48% were clinical grade 1 or 2, 20% were grade 3, and 32% were grade 4 or 5. Proved rebleeding occurred within 10 days of the first SAH in 20% of patients who survived until hospital admission.
