Intensive Insulin Therapy for Strict Glycemic Control in Neurosurgical Patients: Safety and Efficacy


Brief description of study

Strict glycemic control improves mortality and morbidity of patients admitted to the postoperative intensive care unit (ICU). The investigators would like to know if this therapy could improve the long term neurologic and cognitive outcomes of patients treated for acute subarachnoid hemorrhage with either a surgical or intravascular approach.
