Abstract


Background: Rupture of aneurysms often present as subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). It is one of the most severe form of stroke especially in female population. Estrogen has a potential influence on the vascular pathophysiology. Several reports have come up with the hypothesis of establishing the role of estrogen on SAH. Hence, revisiting the hypothesis of the possible relationship of estrogen with SAH is utmost necessary to find a rationale therapeutics based on understanding of pathophysiology. Conclusion: Estrogen deficiency has significant impact on SAH. A practical approachbased on pathophysiology is vital in preventing this dreaded complication in peri-menopausal women harbouring unruptured aneurysms.
