3 Clinical Scenario （臨床情境） 53y/o male admitted due to frequent posture change related dizziness. Loss of consciousness and left hemiparesis on 2010/12/8 Brain CT: Subarachnoid hemorrhage over right frontotemopral regions Transfer to NCU on the same day
4 Background knowledge Oral nimodipine reduce poor outcome (death or dependency) related to aneurysmal SAH (Class I, Level of Evidence A). The number needed to treat (NNT) with nimodipine to prevent one poor outcome was 13 (95% CI 8-30). 60 mg orally Q4H started within 4 days * 3 weeks Pract Neurol 2009; 9: 195–209 Stroke. 2009;40:
5 Background knowlege Nimodipine is effective in the prevention of ischaemic complications after haemorrhage Possible mechanisms include (1)Neuroprotection via reduction of calcium- dependent excitotoxicity, (2)Diminished platelet aggregation, (3)Dilation of small arteries not visible on angiograms, (4)Inhibition of ischemia triggered by red blood cell products.

11 The Study: （研究效度） - 1 Search strategy and selection criteria of studies Systematically searched the electronic PubMed and EMBASE databases up to 2006 Randomised controlled studies investigating the effect of the calcium antagonist nimodipine in patients with head injury were included, irrespective of dose, route of administration, and duration of treatment.
12 The Study: （研究效度） - 2 Glasgow outcome scale was measured 6 months after head injury Outcome definition: Poor=death, vegetative state, or severe disability Favourable=moderate disability and good recovery Secondary outcome=mortality Jadad scale as predictor for quality of trails: All trials scoring 1 or 2 points for randomisation were included
13 The Study: （研究效度） - 3 Statistical analysis: Intention-to-treat principle and processed in Review Manager 4.2 Odds ratios for poor outcome were calculated with a random-effects model because of possible heterogeneity Level of Evidence: Ia

15 The Evidence: （研究重要結果） - 1 Four trials was found in EMBASE and Pubmed Investigators of HIT 1 and 2 and study by Pillai were contacted for additional data; HIT3, only published data were available Principal investigator of HIT 4 granted us permission to analyse and publish the results of HIT 4, which were described in a table of the pooled outcome scores of all patients of all four HITs.

20 Comment & Discussion: -1 The occurrence of poor outcome and mortality rates did not differ between patients treated with nimodipine and those treated with placebo. Contrast with those of the Cochrane review published in 2003.
21 Comment & Discussion: -2 本文與 2003 Cochrane 相異之處有三 Restudied the original data of HIT 1 so that mortality rates of HIT 1 could be included Obtain additional data from the HIT 4 study and included these data in the analysis of all patients with tSAH. (In 2003 Cochrane review HIT 4 data were only included in the overall analysis…) Included the results of Palli study.
22 Comment & Discussion: -3 為何 traumatic 和 aneurysm 對 nimodipine 反應 不同？ Nimodipine is probably only effective for secondary cerebral ischaemia In aSAH, secondary cerebral ischaemia can occur in the weeks after hemorrhage (decrease flow 75/65% blood flow in acute and subacute stage), but much less in tSAH(85/increase) Nimodipine exerts a fibrinolytic effect (decrease secondary vasospasm in aSAH, but increase bleeding in tSAH)
23 Comment & Discussion: -4 此 Paper 之缺點： The Jadad score of HIT 4 was based on a limited number of data. With the available data of HIT 4, the Jadad score was 2. The largest study in this systematic review probably had the lowest quality score.
24 回到臨床個案情境 Clinical bottom line 臨床決策底線 In patient with traumatic subarachnoid haemorrhage, nimodipine did not reduce the poor outcome and mortality. 證據等級 1a, 建議等級 A
