Research Activities

Dr. Tonetti’s research activities include studying long-term functional outcomes after subarachnoid hemorrhage and clinical outcomes after stereotactic radiosurgery. In brief, he has demonstrated that pregnancy may convey an increased risk of hemorrhage from arteriovenous malformations after stereotactic radiosurgery. We have also demonstrated significant long-term functional improvement in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage despite initial Hunt & Hess grade.
