Cerebral aneurysms are arterial malformations of the brain (saccular or fusiform) that may lead to intracranial hemorrhage.
They are discovered or incidentaly after a CT scanner or usually a MRI or more frequently after an intracranial bleeding that may be the cause of irreversible neurological deficit or even death.
The treatment of these malformations is focused on avoiding a recurrence of bleeding either by an endocascular approach that uses coils or by an intracranial route by using clips. Both of these treatments are focued on obliterating the access of dynamic blood stream into a fragile vascular pouch.
All the cases in our clinic are discussed with a multidisciplinar team (radiologists, neurologist, neurosurgeons and anesthesiologists) in order to give the patients the best chance to recover from this dramatic and debilitating disease.
