Brain (cerebral) aneurysms are bulging, weakened areas of an artery that supplies blood to the brain. When brain aneurysms rupture, they cause a subarchanoid hemorrhage, which may result in brain damage or even death. As it is a dangerous condition, if you have any of the risk factors listed below, you should seek treatment as soon as possible.
If you are suffering from any of the following conditions, you might be at risk of death as a result of cerebral aneurysm rupture.
The condition is frighteningly common. According to Brain Aneurysm Foundation statistics, it affects 1 in 50 Americans. The annual rupture rate is 8-10 cases per 100,000, which amounts to approximately 30 thousand people in the USA. Approximately 40 percent of cerebral aneurysm ruptures result in death.
Cerebral aneurysms are often asymptomatic, so they can go unnoticed for years. Only a quarter of those who survived an aneurysm rupture reported having experienced symptoms beforehand. This makes the condition especially dangerous. Aneurysms can form in any part of the brain (though posterior aneurysms are more common). The bulge will balloon as it fills with blood and eventually start to compress a nerve ending or the surrounding tissue. In some cases this leads to symptoms such as blurred vision, severe headaches and neck pain, as well as changed speech. Most cerebral aneurysms are discovered accidentally, during an ultrasound scan or X-ray.
Aneurysms can measure from around 11 mm (for small ones) to over 25 mm in diameter (for giant ones). When one ruptures, blood is released into the spaces around the brain – this is referred to as a “subarachnoid hemorrhage”, which is a type of a stroke. Most survivors are left with some degree of permanent functional impairment. This is why treatment is not something that can wait for later. If you have been diagnosed with the condition, you must seek immediate treatment!
