Can an aneurysm be stable?

Patients/aneurysms were divided into two groups: (1) stable aneurysms defined as unruptured aneurysms without documented evidence of growth or rupture on follow-up imaging (at least 12 months apart) and (2) unstable aneurysms defined as unruptured aneurysms with evidence of growth or rupture on follow-up imaging.

Is berry aneurysm a true aneurysm?

A false aneurysm, also known as pseudoaneurysm, involves only the outer layer of the artery (adventitia). Depending on their shape, they can be saccular or fusiform. Cerebral aneurysms are 90% saccular aneurysms (also known as berry aneurysms), unlike aortic aneurysms, which are about 94% fusiform.

Can aneurysms be cured without surgery?

Treatment with a catheter is done without open surgery. The patient is given an anesthetic. The catheter is inserted into an artery in the groin and then moved up into the blood vessel in the brain that has the aneurysm. The doctor can then place small platinum coils in the aneurysm through the catheter.

Where do most brain aneurysms occur?

Brain aneurysms develop as a result of thinning artery walls. Aneurysms often form at forks or branches in arteries because those sections of the vessel are weaker. Although aneurysms can appear anywhere in the brain, they are most common in arteries at the base of the brain.

How long does it take for a brain aneurysm to form?

Although patients with aneurysms are born with a weakness in one or more spots of the arteries in the brain, it takes many years for aneurysms to grow. An aneurysm grows because the pounding of the blood in this weak spot expands the sac.
