Abstract

10 patients suffering from intracranial aneurysm causing subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) have been treated during the acute pre- and postoperatory phase with є-aminocaproic acid. The blood and the cerebrospinal fluid of the treated patients have been analyzed in order to study fibrin(ogen) degradation products (FDP) and fibrinolytic activity (FA). The results so obtained show only an alteration of local fibrinolytic processes either inside or around the aneurysmatic clot: there were no alterations of the systemic FA. Furthermore, monitoring of FDP and FA was a very useful tool in those patients who took advantage of the treatment with e-aminocaproic acid which protected them from rebleeding.
