Brain Aneurysm


An abnormal bulging outward of one of the arteries in the brain is called Cerebral Aneurysm. Brain aneurysms are often discovered when they rupture, causing bleeding into the brain causing Cerebral Haemorrhage or the space closely surrounding the brain causing Subarachnoid Haemorrhage. Treatment can be surgical - Microvascular Clipping or Non Surgical Endovascular Embolisation or Coiling. Vasospasm which is one of the fallouts of ruptured aneurysm is the leading cause of disability and death. Of all patients, 10% die before reaching medical attention and another 50% die within one month. Ruptured aneurysms are most likely to rebleed within the first day (2-4%), and this risk remains very high for the first 2 weeks (about 25%) if left untreated. Early referral to a hospital that has physicians experienced in treating intracranial aneurysms, early treatment and aggressive treatment of vasospasm are 3 factors that have been correlated with improved outcomes. Fifty percent of survivors have neurological deficits.

The decision of the type of treatment by the doctor is based on the condition of the patient and the outcome of the procedure. With this reason brain aneurysm surgery is to be done by an expert and experienced neurosurgeon. Best hospital for Brain Aneurysm Treatment in India are Artemis Hospital in Gurgaon and Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon
