Abstract

It is thought that nimodipine, a calcium antagonist increases the tolerance of neural tissue to ischemia via antagonizing calcium influx into the smooth muscle cells of arteries and thus preventing vasospams in aneurysmatic subarachnoid bleedings However, the efficacy in traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhages is still debatable. In this review article, we discussed the potential beneficial role of nimodipine in traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhages in the light of relevant literature.
