Neurocardiac Injury After Cerebral and Subarachnoid Hemorrhages
Cerebrovascular events are associated with high mortality and morbidity rates. Neurocardiac injury after a subarachnoid hemorrhage and cerebral hemorrhage further worsen clinical outcomes. Excess catecholamine-induced cardiotoxicity is currently the most widely accepted pathophysiologic mechanism. Awareness of neurocardiac injury and the cardiac manifestations associated with it will allow for early diagnosis and appropriate management.
