cerebral aneurysm is a weak or thin spot on a blood vessel that balloons out and fills with blood. The bulging aneurysm can put pressure on a nerve or surrounding brain tissue. It may also leak or rupture, spilling blood into the surrounding tissue (hemorrhage). Some cerebral aneurysms, particularly those that are very small, do not bleed or cause problems. These aneurysms can occur anywhere in the brain but are more commonly found with the larger vessels in the brain.
Treatment for non-ruptured Cerebral Aneurysms
The best approach to treatment depends on the type of aneurysm and the location. For some, clipping of the aneurysm is the best approach, for others, endovascular embolization is the preferred choice.
At Parker Adventist Hospital, we can help individuals determine the best approach through our imaging and technologies. In our state of the art neuroscience operating room, we can safely perform microvascular clipping. Should an individual need embolization for the aneurysms, our sister hospital is equipped to perform that procedure under the guidance of our neurosurgeon.
