Trying to Learn About Brain Aneurysm? Here are a Few Useful Things to Know.
How do Brain Aneurysms Form?
- A brain aneurysm is a weak spot in a blood vessel that bulges or balloons.
- You aren’t born with an aneurysm. They typically develop after the age of 40, often at the points where arteries branch, due to constant pressure from blood flow.
- A brain aneurysm can be caused by factors like high blood pressure, heavy lifting, strong emotions, drug use (e.g., amphetamines, cocaine), and brain trauma.
How are Brain Aneurysms Detected?
- Special imaging tests like CT and MRI can detect cerebral aneurysms.
- The most reliable test is a diagnostic cerebral angiogram, which involves inserting a catheter through a leg vessel to view the brain’s blood vessels.
- Having one aneurysm increases the chance of having others (about 20%).
- Small brain aneurysms may not cause symptoms, but larger ones can lead to headaches, localized pain, vision problems, weakness, and seizures.
What Causes a Brain Aneurysm to Bleed?
- Brain aneurysms can bleed, causing a subarachnoid hemorrhage with symptoms like severe headaches, nausea, and coma.
- Once an aneurysm bleeds, there’s a 40% chance of death and a 66% chance of brain damage.
- Bleeding can damage the brain directly, and it may also lead to complications like vasospasm, hydrocephalus, and infection.
What are the Treatments Available for a Brain Aneurysm?
- Treatment of a ruptured aneurysm does not reverse brain damage; it prevents further bleeding.
- Treatment methods (surgical clipping or endovascular coiling) are chosen based on factors like aneurysm size, location, shape, and the patient’s condition.
- Small, unruptured aneurysms may not require treatment but should be monitored.
- Potential complications of treatment include the risk of re-bleeding and damage to normal blood vessels.
- Follow-up procedures after treatment include post-operative angiograms and routine follow-up angiograms, depending on the treatment method.
- Blood thinners, such as anticoagulants, antiplatelet drugs, and fibrinolytics, play specific roles in preventing blood clots and related conditions.

Put Brain Aneurysm on Your Health Radar
Did you experience the worst headache of your life? Could it be a brain aneurysm that ruptures, which means bleeding in the brain? Thoughts could be racing through your mind. Then what is the difference between unruptured (a weak or thin spot on an artery in the brain that balloons) or ruptured brain aneurysm? If you’re wondering, then the Supreme Vascular and Interventional Clinic is here to help. It’s important to look out for the tell-tale brain aneurysm symptoms, signs, causes, and risk factors.
Dr. Manish Taneja has been performing brain aneurysm treatments since 1995 from surgical clipping to latest minimally invasive procedures. Each patient is unique as is the size and location of the aneurysm. Your brain has different conditions to treat the aneurysm and artery vessel walls of a blood vessel in the brain. This calls for personalised brain aneurysm treatment depending on your symptoms, family, history, medication, and more. A simple CT scan could be just what the doctor ordered and the first step in early detection and prevention of a brain aneurysm. Come in for an easy consultation with our brain aneurysm specialist to be on your health radar.
