Here’s What You Need To Know About Intracranial Aneurysm

About

Brain aneurysms occur when the blood fills up the brain’s arterial wall due to the presence of a weak spot in your brain.

There is a brain aneurysm rupturing every 18 minutes. [1]

● Requires a medical diagnosis
● Lab tests or imaging is required
● Can be medically treated

An aneurysm is a potentially life-threatening condition as it may cause a permanent heart or brain damage when it bursts. It may even lead to the death of the patient as it causes severe bulging of the artery.

Symptoms

An aneurysm may not show any visible symptoms before it ruptures. However, some common signs of an unruptured aneurysm include the following:

1. A headache or pain behind or near the eyes
2. Blurred or double vision
3. Dizziness
4. Visual deficits
5. Seizures

A ruptured aneurysm may show the following along with the above-mentioned symptoms:
1. An intense headache
2. Stiffness in the neck
3. Loss of consciousness
4. Nausea or vomiting
5. Change in awareness or mental state

Treatment

The treatment for an aneurysm depends upon the severity of the condition. Pain medication may be used for headaches and eye pain.
● If an aneurysm is accessible, surgical intervention may include surgical clipping or endovascular coiling to repair or cut off blood to an aneurysm. This can prevent further growth or rupture.
● Lifestyle changes include making dietary changes and exercising. Cut down on alcohol, smoking, and tobacco.
