Purpose:

The study investigates safety, feasibility and effectiveness of cervical spinal cord stimulation (SCS) in prevention of cerebral arterial vasospasm following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). It is postulated that 2 week long stimulation of the cervical spinal cord using an implanted epidural electrode will prevent or decrease severity of cerebral arterial vasospasm following aSAH.


Study summary:

Continuous stimulation of the cervical spinal cord for 14 days after electrode implantation (within 3 days after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage). The single-arm single-institution non-randomized prospective study evaluates effects of cervical spinal cord stimulation on prevention of cerebral arterial vasospasm. The patients are followed for 12 months after completion of stimulation.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Age 18-65 - Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) within 72 hours - Ruptured aneurysm confirmed by angiography of CT angiography - Fisher grade 2-4 - Hunt & Hess grade 2-4 - Aneurysm is secured - Ability to obtain informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - Pregnancy - Allergy to IV contrast or to any component of SCS system - Non-aneurysmal SAH - Previous cervical spine surgery or any anomaly of cervical spine that would prevent electrode insertion - Coagulopathy
