This condition is one of the most complex acute conditions encountered in medicine. The healthcare team has to face difficult and complicated neurological and systemic issues. Rupture of an intracranial aneurysm was traditionally associated with a poor prognosis, and survivors were left with significant physical and cognitive disabilities. Thanks to several improvements in critical care and all the processes surrounding this disorder, the potential for a full physical and cognitive recovery from this condition is now possible.
