  • study
  • A retrospective study was made of ten patients who were treated by coil embolization of posterior communicating artery aneurysm caused. (ebscohost.com)
  • The purposes of this study are to identify possible genes that may increase the risk of aneurysm development in the brain, and to determine the effect of environmental factors such as cigarette smoking and high blood pressure on the expression of these genes. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The Familial Intracranial Aneurysm Study is a collaborative research effort of neurologists and neurosurgeons throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to identify possible genes that may increase the risk of stroke, and particularly, the development of aneurysms in the blood vessels of the brain. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This study will involve 475 families with multiple affected family members, and will also determine the effect of environmental factors such as cigarette smoking and high blood pressure on the expression of the genes.A group of physicians from throughout North America, Australia and New Zealand have formed a collaborative effect to identify genes that may be important in the development of aneurysms in the blood vessels of the brain. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This study of affected individuals and families, known as the Familial Intracranial Aneurysm (FIA) study, is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and has involved over 475 families. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • To be eligible to participate in this study, families must have two or more affected pairs of siblings (brothers/sisters) or 3 or more family members affected with intracranial aneurysms. (clinicaltrials.gov)

  • Genetic conditions associated with connective tissue disease may also be associated with the development of aneurysms. (wikipedia.org)
  • multiple aneurysms
  • Rebleeding, hydrocephalus (the excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid ), vasospasm (spasm, or narrowing, of the blood vessels), or multiple aneurysms may also occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • The use of intravenous contrast media is necessary for the identification of blood vessels and provides accurate information regarding the location, the size, and the shape of an aneurysm, as well as the presence of multiple aneurysms. (hindawi.com)

  • Current treatments include open surgical clipping of an aneurysm, which is a highly invasive procedure that involves opening the patient's skull. (brainblogger.com)
  • Also, surgical clipping of aneurysm has far more superior long term results as the recurrence rate is lower than coiling. (brainblogger.com)

  • blood vessel
  • An intracranial aneurysm can be defined as a thin sac that develops in the brain through the swelling of a weakened blood vessel. (brainblogger.com)
  • The purpose of this advanced procedure is to stop blood flow to the aneurysm and restore normal blood flow to the parent blood vessel in a minimally invasive way. (brainblogger.com)
  • Since the 1990s many aneurysms are treated by a less invasive procedure called "coiling", which is carried out through a large blood vessel. (wikipedia.org)
