Aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage (aSAH) is associated with high morbidity and mortality despite novel treatments. Genetic variability may explain outcome differences. Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) is a glycoprotein with a major role in brain lipoprotein metabolism. It has three isoforms encoded by distinct alleles: APOEε2, APOEε3 and APOEε4. The APOEε4 allele is associated with Alzheimer's disease and worse outcome after traumatic brain injury and ischaemic stroke. This prospective blinded study explored the influence of the APOEε4 polymorphism on the risk of aSAH, risk of cerebral vasospasm (CVS) and 1-year neurological outcome.
