Intracranial Aneurysm is an abnormal bulge in the artery of the brain which results from the debilitation of its inner muscular layer known as intima. Many factors contribute to an intracranial aneurysm, namely, smoking, high blood pressure, injury of the blood vessels, complications in case of blood infections. The rupture of a brain aneurysm may cause irreversible brain damage and coma. Aneurysms are typically found at the bottom of the brain within the skull.
