  • 7-10 Besides severity of bleeding, outcome after SAH may be influenced by such preictal factors as patient age, 4,11-13 aneurysm site 4 and size (in surgical SAH cases), 4 history of hypertension, 11,13 and heavy alcohol drinking. (ahajournals.org)
  • The risk of poor outcomes appeared lower for women who underwent treatment for ruptured aneurysms: either surgical clipping or less-invasive, endovascular "coiling. (medindia.net)
  • Once ruptured, however, prompt aneurysmal obliteration (either surgical clipping or endovascular coiling) should be helpful in decreasing the rate of poor outcomes. (medindia.net)
  • Although surgical repair of aortic aneurysms can help prevent rupture and reduce death, researchers say it is important to find signs of increased risk, before this medical emergency occurs. (heart.org)
  • Intraoperative aneurysmal rupture: incidence, outcome, and suggestions for surgical management. (springer.com)
  • To describe the author's experience in the treatment of large or giant fusiform MCA aneurysm by using various surgical techniques. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • researchers
  • However, a recent study by researchers from the University of Helsinki and Helsinki University Central Hospital demonstrated that the size of an aneurysm has no great significance on the risk of rupture. (redorbit.com)
  • What surprised the researchers most was that the size of an aneurysm had little impact on its risk for rupture, particularly for men, despite a previously presumed correlation. (redorbit.com)
  • Using these figures, the researchers estimated a 1.4 percent risk of aneurysm rupture during pregnancy and 0.05 percent during delivery. (medindia.net)
  • High Rate of Cesarean Section May Be Unnecessary The researchers also identified 218 deliveries in women with known unruptured aneurysms. (medindia.net)
  • After taking into account other risk factors for aneurysm, such as hypertension, diabetes, tobacco use and alcohol abuse, researchers found that people with emphysema were more than twice as likely as those without it to experience a ruptured aortic aneurysm and 50 percent more likely to have an aneurysm-caused subarachnoid hemorrhage.

  • Current computational fluid dynamics findings correlating both high and low wall shear stress with intracranial aneurysm growth and rupture puzzle researchers and clinicians alike. (ajnr.org)
  • Researchers hope to add a third alternative -- drugs to lower the odds of the aneurysm rupturing. (hon.ch)
  • left untreated
  • When this vessel becomes weakened it can form a balloon-like bulge that may rupture and if left untreated can cause sudden death. (heart.org)
  • prognostic
  • Independently of other prognostic factors, high systolic blood pressure (BP) values after aneurysm rupture predict death, poor outcome, 4 and possibly occurrence of early rebleeding. (ahajournals.org)
  • risk factors
  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm has a greater risk of occurring in older men who have other risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and the smoking-related lung disease emphysema. (heart.org)
  • patient's
  • While using administrative data allows investigators to study a large group of people, these records don't capture clinical variables, such as the severity, treatment or duration of a patient's emphysema or aneurysm, or the context in which the diagnosis was made. (hon.ch)
  • Neuroradiology
  • In a recent American Journal of Neuroradiology editorial, Kallmes 7 raised concerns regarding the current status of CFD studies and their clinical utility in IA rupture risk assessments, asking if CFD should alternatively be interpreted as "confounding factor dissemination. (ajnr.org)
