Item description for Neuropsychological Sequelae of Subarachnoid Hemorrhage and its Treatment by W. Seeger B.O. Hütter...
This book is the first monograph dealing exclusively with the neuropsychological and psychosocial sequelae of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and its treatment. In the first part the reader finds an overview of basic treatment modalities and functional outcome after SAH with special emphasis on aneurysm surgery. In the methods section, neuropsychological, neuropsychiatric and capacity of daily life assessment issues in patients after SAH are reviewed. The author gives a broad survey of studies dealing with the neuropsychological, psychopathological and psychosocial sequelae of SAH. The neuroanatomical basis of the neurobehavioral abnormalities after SAH is critically discussed. The overall hypothesis proposed by the author is that the main cause of the psychological disturbances after SAH is the bleeding itself and related events. Neuropsychological sequelae of operative procedures and events in aneurysm surgery are reviewed in detail. Furthermore, the frequently overseen aspects of psychological adjustment including quality of life after SAH, the hemorrhage as a psychological trauma, and rehabilitational issues are discussed in detail.
