A wide range of pharmacological treatment options for medical management of vasospasm, following SAH, are reported, i.e. calcium-antagonists, 21-amino-steroids, fibrinolitics, vasodilators and CVF (venom of Cobra). Out of them, action mechanisms and clinical experiences are discussed, pointing out that surgical depletion of cisternal clots, hypertension, hypovolemia and hemodilution still represent a golden standard in the management of vasospasm due to SAH.
