    Notes: Summary CSF eicosanoid levels are raised following subarachnoid haemorrhage but not sufficiently to be vasoactive per se within the cerebral circulation. Rebleeding and intraventricular haemorrhage are two factors associated with a worse outcome after aneurysmal SAH. We have examined the effects of these two factors on the CSF levels of TXB2 (TXA2 metabolite), PG 6-keto F1α (prostacyclin metabolite), PGF2α and PGE2 in 44 patients following subarachnoid haemorrhage. In 15 patients who had received no non-steroidal antiinflammatory agent or dexamethasone, intraventricular haemorrhage increased the median levels of all four eicosanoids in ventricular CSF by 2.1–5.1-fold. In 4 patients who rebled, the CSF median levels of all four eicosanoids were raised up to 250-fold over the normal range. These concentrations are just sufficient to have cerebrovascular and neuromodulatory effects.
