The results of the International Subarachnoid Aneurysm Trial (ISAT) in 2002 have significantly influenced the management of ruptured intracranial aneurysms. There is now an established shift worldwide toward endovascular coiling as the initial treatment of choice. We assessed the outcomes of patients admitted to our institution for aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH), comparing the outcomes of patients (World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies [WFNS] grades 1?3) who underwent surgical clipping versus those who underwent endovascular coiling.
