Join us as we count down to 2021 with a SANS question every day this month. Test your knowledge and learn something new each day as you participate. Questions will be posted to Twitter daily.
Which calcium channel blocker has been demonstrated to improve outcome in ptients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage?
The correct answer is oral nimodipine.
The latest SAH guidelines endorse oral nimodipine for all patients with aneurysmal SAH, which improves neurological outcomes but not cerebral vasospasm. This recommendation was supported by 1 clinical trial published in NEJM and 1 meta-analysis of the Cochrane database.
The SANS Lifelong Learning Exams was designed to enhance medical knowledge and self-assessment in neurosurgery, reinforce practice patterns, and recognize knowledge gaps. SANS exams offer 250 questions across specialties worth up to 24 CME.
