Answer

Emergent neurosurgical or neurologic consultation is often indicated; local referral patterns may vary. The need for invasive intracranial pressure monitoring and for emergent cerebral angiography should be assessed by the neurosurgeon. Patients in whom the hemorrhage’s cause is unclear and who would otherwise be candidates for surgery should be considered for angiographic evaluation.
