An early elevated white blood cell (WBC) count represents a strong predictor of delayed cerebral ischemia after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in patients with good clinical grade, new research suggests. "The utility of the admission WBC as a measure of systemic inflammation following SAH is simple, cost-effective and most importantly can provide us with an indication of likelihood of developing delayed cerebral ischemia," first author, Fawaz Al-Mufti, MD, told Medscape Medical News.
