More than 40 articles provide an extensive coverage of clinical and basic science advances over the last three years of research on subarachnoid hemorrhage-induced brain injuries. Early brain injury, the new frontier of subarachnoid hemorrhage research, which may be a key contributor to the high mortality and morbidity, promotes collaborative efforts from neurosurgery, neurology, neuro-ICU into other interrelated fields and basic neurosciences. For the first time, subarachnoid hemorrhage research is almost equally divided by early brain injury and cerebral vasospasm, mechanistic investigations and therapeutic approaches, demonstrating a translational feature of the future direction.

From the book reviews:
"This is a complete, self contained and reasonable treatment of the literature on cerebral vasospasm & head injury, a welcome multi-authored international approach. ... I highly recommend this monograph to neurologists, neurosurgeons, graduate students, medical and critical care physicians." (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, July, 2014)
