Intracranial aneurysms are the most common source of nontraumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in elderly patients. Despite the fact that more patients who present with SAH are middle-aged, the age-specific incidence for SAH increases with increasing age. The elderly patients with aneurysmal SAH have a trend toward poor outcome. Furthermore there are age-associated factors that increase perioperative and postoperative risks. In this paper, authors will review and discuss the reason why older patients have a poorer outcome and management for aneurysmal SAH in geriatric patients.
