Abstract

132 pts who underwent supratentorial craniotomy and microsurgical procedure for ruptured intracranial aneurysm during the period 1974-84 at the Neurosurgery Institute of the University of Milano have been reviewed to determine incidence and prognostic factors of seizures. Early seizures (during hospitalization) occurred in 8% of pts; late seizures appeared in 6% of cases; in most pts seizures were rare and well controlled by anticonvulsant therapy. Late fits were more likely to occur when the aneurysm was situated on the middle cerebral artery, and when complications as vasospasm, clinical signs of brain damage, early seizures, appeared in the acute phase. Ethylism seems to be also a risk factor. At the time of first late seizures the majority of pts were not taking anticonvulsants.
