Patients with good motor function outcomes after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage treatment may still be left with neuropsychiatric effects. They can suffer from such difficult conditions as cognitive dysfunction, depression and sexual dysfunction. Not all of these patients will volunteer their symptoms unprompted on follow-up. This outcome type has had limited study, and became an interest of today's guest, Dr. Jose Danilo Bengzon Diestro (1). JNIS editor-in-chief Dr. Felipe Albuquerque speaks with him on this subject, based on the recently published paper, "Long-term neuropsychiatric complications of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: a narrative review".
