Brain Aneurysm Surgery

Ballooning or formation of a bulge in the brain is called Brain Aneurysm. These can further rupture & bleed to cause hemorrhagic shock.

Know More About Surgery

The signs or symptoms of Brain Aneurysm are:

  • Seizures 
  • Drooping of the eyelids
  • Severe Headache
  • Impaired Speech
  • Double Vision
  • Numbness
  • Muscle weakness 

Brain Aneurysm can be diagnosed in the following ways:

  • Physical Examination
  • CT Scan
  • MRI
  • EEG

It can be treated in either of the two ways:

  • Endovascular Coiling: A catheter is inserted, usually through the groin region to the body of the aneurysm. A soft platinum wire is guided through the catheter to coil up inside the aneurysm, this disrupts the blood flow which leads to the blood clot. This blood clot seals off the aneurysm from the artery.

  • Surgical Clipping: A small section of the skull is removed to locate the aneurysm & the blood vessels supplying to it. Then a tiny metal clip is placed on the neck of the aneurysm to stop the blood supply. It is less invasive.

 

The risks involved in a Brain Aneurysm surgery are:

  • Breathing problems
  • Blood clot
  • Bleeding
  • Infections
  • Swelling in brain 
  • Seizures
  • Stroke

CT Scan & MRI may be done on follow- up to ensure there are no other concerns.

FAQ Section

1) What is a brain aneurysm?

A brain aneurysm is a bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain and often looks like a berry hanging on a stem. A brain aneurysm can leak or rupture and can cause bleeding into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke), and usually, a ruptured brain aneurysm occurs in the space between the brain and the thin tissues covering the brain and is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage. A ruptured aneurysm quickly becomes life-threatening and demands quick medical treatment.

2) What is brain aneurysm surgery?

Brain aneurysm surgery is done to correct an aneurysm, a weak area in a blood vessel wall that makes the vessel bulge or balloon out  and sometimes burst (rupture), bleeding into the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) around the brain.

3) What are the risks of brain aneurysm surgery?

Potential risks of brain aneurysm repair include:

  • behavior changes due to neurological injury.
  • blood clots.
  • brain swelling.
  • confusion.
  • infection.
  • seizures.
  • speech and vision problems.
  • stroke.

4) How effective is brain aneurysm repair?

The study found that short-term survival rates increased among patients who underwent the surgery to repair a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, and the relative survival rate held steady at about 87 percent, and on average, patients who underwent repair for a ruptured aneurysm lived 5.4 years after surgery.

5) Can you appear for brain aneurysm surgery before the rupture?

Yes, you can appear for the surgery to fix an aneurysm in your brain, preventing strokes, bleeding, and brain damage.

6) How long does brain aneurysm surgery take?

Without complications, a coiling procedure for an unruptured aneurysm typically takes between an hour and a half and three hours.

7) How long is recovery from brain aneurysm surgery?

It will take three to six weeks to fully recover, but if you had bleeding from your aneurysm this may take longer, and you may feel tired for up to twelve or more weeks, and If you had a stroke or brain injury from the bleeding, you may have permanent problems such as muscle weakness, trouble with speech or thinking, or numbness.

8) What are the after-effects of a brain aneurysm repair?

If you had bleeding before, during, or after surgery you may have some short- or long-term problems which may be mild or severe, which for many people, these problems get better over time. You may feel sad, angry, or very nervous, which is normal. Have may have a seizure and will have to take medicine to prevent another one. You will have headaches that may continue for a while, which
