Cerebral Aneurysm

An aneurysm is a bulging or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain, often known as a cerebral aneurysm. It generally resembles a berry hanging from a stem.

A cerebral aneurysm can burst or leak, resulting in brain hemorrhage (hemorrhagic stroke). The region between the brain and the delicate tissues covering the brain is where a ruptured brain aneurysm most frequently develops. A subarachnoid hemorrhage is the medical term for this kind of hemorrhagic stroke.

Aneurysm ruptures can turn life-threatening and necessitate immediate medical attention.

However, the majority of brain aneurysms do not burst, result in medical issues, or produce symptoms. These aneurysms are frequently found during examinations for other disorders.

Symptoms of Ruptured Aneurysm:

A sudden, severe headache is the key symptom of a ruptured aneurysm. This headache is often described as the "worst headache" ever experienced.

Common signs and symptoms of a ruptured aneurysm include:

  • Sudden, extremely severe headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Stiff neck
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Seizure
  • A drooping eyelid
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Confusion

Leaking aneurysm: In some cases, an aneurysm may leak a slight amount of blood. This leaking (sentinel bleed) may cause only a:

  • Sudden, extremely severe headache
  • A more severe rupture often follows leaking.

Unruptured aneurysm: An unruptured brain aneurysm may produce no symptoms, particularly if it's small. However, a larger unruptured aneurysm may press on brain tissues and nerves, possibly causing:

  • Pain above and behind one eye
  • A dilated pupil
  • Change in vision or double vision
  • Numbness of one side of the face


The causes of brain aneurysm are unknown, but a range of factors may increase your risk.

Risk factors:

The likelihood of a brain aneurysm or an aneurysm rupture can rise as a result of artery wall weakness caused by a variety of circumstances. Adults are more likely to have brain aneurysms than children, and women are more likely to experience them than males.

Some of these risk factors are present at birth, while others emerge over time. The cause of a brain aneurysm is unknown. These factors, according to researchers, irritate and weaken blood vessels:

  • Smoking.
  • blood contamination
  • elevated blood pressure (hypertension).
  • cocaine and amphetamine usage.
  • harm to the brain from trauma (often caused by car crashes).
  • Atherosclerosis (fatty buildup on blood-vessel walls).
  • Brain aneurysms start to form when?
  • Although rare, brain aneurysms can develop in adults as young as 30, the likelihood increases after the age of 40.

Treatment for Brain Aneurysm

In some circumstances, treatment for a brain aneurysm that has not ruptured may be necessary in order to avoid a future rupture.

You can get assistance from a neurologist in deciding if the recommended course of treatment is right for you by working with a neurosurgeon or interventional neuroradiologist.

When recommending a course of treatment, following is taken into account:

  • The size, position, degree of irregularity, and general look of the aneurysm of the aneurysm
  • You age and general health
  • Family history of aneurysm rupture
  • Congenital issues that enhance the chance of an aneurysm rupturing

An aneurysm in the brain that has not ruptured can be treated in one of two ways:

  • Surgical clipping- is a procedure to close off an aneurysm. In order to access the aneurysm, the neurosurgeon must remove a portion of your skull. He or she then finds the blood vessel that supplies the aneurysm. To block blood flow into the aneurysm, the neurosurgeon then attaches a tiny metal clip to its neck.
  • Endovascular coiling- is a less invasive procedure than surgical clipping. The surgeon threads a catheter through your body to the aneurysm by inserting it into an artery, typically in your wrist or groin. The aneurysm is subsequently removed from inside the blood vessel using a flow diverter, an intraluminal flow disruptor, a stent, or coils, or various combinations of these devices.
  • Flow Diverters- Tubular stent-like implants (flow diverters), which act by diverting blood flow away from an aneurysm sac, are among the more recent therapies for brain aneurysms. The diversion blocks blood flow inside the aneurysm and encourages the parent artery to be rebuilt by igniting the body's natural healing process. Larger aneurysms that cannot be safely treated by other methods may benefit especially from flow diverters.

When is the treatment for Cerebral Aneurysm Needed?

Emergency surgery is required for a brain aneurysm that is leaking or burst. However, it's possible that a brain aneurysm won't be discovered until after you've had an imaging test for another condition.

Your doctor might advise against treating a tiny brain aneurysm if it isn't creating symptoms and you don't have any other pertinent risk factors. Instead, to rule out any alterations or growth over time, your doctor will schedule routine imaging exams. Additionally, they will advise you to stop smoking (if you are a smoker) and demand that your blood pressure is kept under control. If you experience symptoms or follow-up imaging reveals aneurysm change or growth, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Your healthcare practitioner will go over the advantages, hazards, and other treatment options with you if you have symptoms, risk factors that are favorable, or a large aneurysm. The choice is based on a number of things, not the least of which is you:

  • Age
  • General well-being and your health issues
  • Location, size, and other characteristics of aneurysms
  • Vascular physiology
  • Family background
  • Risk of brain bleed (rupture)

Question to Ask

How is Brain Aneurysm Surgery done?

Brain aneurysms, whether ruptured or not, are treated with surgery and/or endovascular therapy or Flow Diversion. The procedure is done under general anesthesia.

Surgical clipping- Your surgeon makes a tiny incision in your head during this surgery to gain access to the aneurysm. Your surgeon places a tiny metal clip to the aneurysm's base using a tiny microscope and tools to pinch it off.

By doing this, blood cannot enter the aneurysm. The procedure can prevent an intact aneurysm from rupturing or stop a brain haemorrhage. The length of recovery varies depending on whether an aneurysm ruptured (many weeks to months) or not (typically two to four weeks). This technique is thought to be long-lasting and has a low recurrence rate.

Endovascular coiling (coil embolization, stenting, balloon remodeling, flow diversion, intraluminal web device) - Your surgeon doesn't have to make a hole in your skull for this treatment. Instead, a medical professional threads a catheter—a flexible tube—through a blood vessel—typically in the wrist or groin—and into your brain.

Your doctor inserts a tiny ball of platinum-coated wires (which resembles a ball of yarn) into the aneurysm through the catheter, occasionally with the aid of tiny stents or balloons. Recently, another tiny gadget (named Web) that functions similarly to coils and resembles a mesh ball made of nickel titanium also became available.

Both techniques lead to the creation of blood clots inside and around the wire ball or web device, which stop blood flow into the aneurysm and lessen or completely eliminate the danger of rupture.

Flow Diversion- This is a relatively newer technique. The procedure uses a catheter that is woven up a blood artery from the wrist or groin to the brain. Your doctor will then insert a mesh tube into the section of the blood vessel that the aneurysm is in using the catheter. Blood is encouraged or directed away from the aneurysm by the mesh.

Based on your vascular anatomy, the size and location of the aneurysm, and a number of other factors, your doctor will advise you on the best course of action.

What Results can I Expect from Brain Aneurysm Treatment?

The results of the surgery are very gratifying. The treatment of a cerebral aneurysm is generally very safe, and the outcome is usually good.

What is the Recovery after Brain Aneurysm Treatment like?

It usually takes one week for a person to fully recuperate, during which time they gradually resume their normal activities.

Your doctors will advise you to take it easy in the initial days following your coiling treatment and refrain from driving, engaging in intense activity, or lifting objects heavier than a milk carton. It is recommended that you keep an eye out for any signs of infection at the location of the incision if you have headaches, nausea, or exhaustion. Medication may be provided to you to treat pain or other problems.

It will take 3 to 6 weeks to fully recover. If you had bleeding from your aneurysm this may take longer. You may feel tired for up to 12 or more weeks. If you had a stroke or brain injury from the bleeding, you may have permanent problems such as trouble with speech or thinking, muscle weakness, or numbness.

Patient Testimonials

  • I am highly indebted to the whole IndiCure team and Dr Singh specifically for saving my life. The doctors in my home country Nigeria had clearly stated that if I do not get operated for a brain tumor at the earliest, I would not live more than a month. But the promptness with which IndiCure team arranged things for me was something extraordinary. I am extremely satisfied with the whole experience and completely relieved of all my symptoms.

    Thanks a lot!

    Michelle Ramos,Ghana

    Treatment: Brain tumor surgery

  • Thank you so much IndiCure for helping my brother get rid of the seizures he frequently had. We are very hopeful that he will be able to lead a normal life from now onwards.

    We shall be eternally grateful to the IndiCure doctors and their entire team. God bless them.

    Blessing Mercy,Nigeria

    Procedure: Epilepsy Surgery

  • Everyone said it is foolish to go all the way to India on a stretcher thinking that I can stand and walk after a stroke. Everyone recommended that I go either to the US or Germany for rehabilitation after a stroke, but somehow my inner voice pulled me to India.

    The staff at IndiCure provided me with all the information I needed to make the decision. I spoke with Dr Bakshi and that was really reassuring. The treatment and the staff were fabulous. I can now walk independently without any support. My friends and relatives were awestruck when I reached back walking. I even wrote an article about my recovery and experience, so that the people waiting to get treatment should know there exists a ray of hope for them also.


    Procedure: Left hemiplegia treatment

  • My father had severe Parkinsonism and life was becoming more difficult with every passing day. Now that he has undergone DBS surgery, I feel this was the best decision of our life. IndiCure was greatly instrumental in helping us make the decision and India is probably the best place to undergo medical treatment- Excellent services and much affordable.

Frequently Asked Questions

In the United States, 6% of persons have a brain aneurysm that isn't bleeding (called an unruptured aneurysm). Brain aneurysm ruptures are uncommon. Every year, 30,000 Americans suffer from them.

A brain aneurysm is more likely to occur if you:

  • are women.
  • range in age from 40 to 60.
  • have a history of aneurysms in your family
  • possess an uncommon blood vessel condition like cerebral arteritis, fibromuscular dysplasia, or arterial dissection.
  • possess a connective tissue-related genetic condition, such as Loeys-Dietz syndrome, Marfan syndrome, neurofibromatosis type 1, or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
  • have renal polycystic disease.
  • are born with a congenital abnormality called a cerebral aneurysm.

After speaking with your primary care physician, it might be acceptable to check out the children or siblings of first-degree relatives if one individual has a brain aneurysm. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans are frequently used to perform these tests.

According to studies, the relationship could exist between 10% and 20% of the time. But all have demonstrated that medical professionals occasionally discover that relatives of aneurysm patients also have aneurysms. If you or any members of your family have other cerebral aneurysm risk factors, this risk increases even further.

The precise reason why an aneurysm ruptures or leaks, causing bleeding in or around the brain, is still unknown. However, anything that raises blood pressure has the potential to be harmful. Blood pushes against blood vessel walls more forcefully at higher blood pressure levels. Following are some factors that could raise blood pressure:

Ongoing anxiety or an unexpected outburst of rage or another powerful emotion. Lifting, pushing, or carrying something heavy—such as furniture or weights—with effort. Untreated high blood pressure that is well known for causing ruptures.

Most individuals with unruptured brain aneurysms are unaware of their condition. Typically, it doesn't produce any symptoms or even any pain.

However, while looking into the reasons for chronic headaches, numerous smaller (and not just larger) aneurysms are actually discovered. Headaches and an unruptured aneurysm may or may not be causally associated, according to researchers. One theory is that the enlarged blood vessel is pressing against the nerves and surrounding membranes and tissues, resulting in the headache.

A ruptured aneurysm can cause a sudden, severe headache (sometimes known as a "thunderclap headache"). Rarely, an aneurysm that is bleeding a little amount of blood might also cause a headache to continue for days or weeks. Sentinel headaches are this kind of persistent headache. It serves as an alert that the aneurysm is going to rupture.

Headaches are one of the primary indicators of an intact aneurysm. Other indications could be:

  • Vision changes.
  • Enlarged (dilated) pupil, the black part of the eye.
  • Seizures.
  • Numbness or tingling on the head or face.
  • Pain above and behind the eye.
  • Neck pain.
  • Nausea and vomiting.

A leaking or ruptured brain aneurysm poses a life-threatening risk. It necessitates immediate medical attention. A ruptured brain aneurysm headache is frequently described as the worst headache a person has ever experienced. The excruciating headache appears out of nowhere and might continue for hours or days.

You might experience some of the same symptoms of an unruptured aneurysm in addition to a strong headache (see list above). Possibly you could also have:

  • Stiff neck.
  • Drowsiness or even coma.
  • Mental confusion.
  • Dizziness or problems with your balance.
  • Difficulty speaking.
  • Weakness or no feeling in an arm or leg.
  • Heart attack.

It is unlikely that an aneurysm will go away on its own after being discovered. However, leading a healthy lifestyle can lower the chance of aneurysm growth, change, rupture, or new aneurysm formation. You can do the following:

  • Give up smoking.
  • Regular (and moderate) exercise without overly strenuous lifting is advised.
  • Consume a healthy diet.
  • Don't use cocaine or any other stimulant substances, and seek help if you have an alcohol or drug use disorder.
  • Change your lifestyle and take medicine to lower your blood pressure.

Unruptured brain aneurysms can be undetected for the entirety of a person's life. You stand a good chance as long as it's whole. However, there is a chance that the aneurysm in the brain would burst. This risk relies on a number of variables, including the aneurysm's size, location, and other elements. A hemorrhagic stroke is brought on if an aneurysm ruptures, leaking blood into the area around your brain and occasionally into the brain tissue itself.

Emergency medical care is required for a ruptured brain aneurysm. The risk of death or disability increases as time goes on with a ruptured aneurysm. With a ruptured brain aneurysm, about 75% of patients survive for more than 24 hours. However, one-fourth of the survivors could experience fatal consequences within six months. Your chances of survival are higher the sooner you can receive medical care.

Blood rushes into or around the brain when the aneurysm ruptures or leaks. The irritated brain tissue caused by the blood pooling might cause swelling of the brain. Permanent brain injury, stroke, or further issues like:

  • Vasospasm is a condition in which the blood vessels constrict and less oxygen reaches the brain.
  • A condition known as hydrocephalus, or "water on the brain," is a buildup of spinal fluid surrounding the brain that causes pressure.
  • When you are unconscious for numerous days to weeks, you are in a coma.
  • Hyponatremia, a condition where the sodium level in the blood fluctuates, can harm the brain by causing brain cells to enlarge.
  • Muscle convulsions, often known as seizures, which can exacerbate existing brain injury.

It's crucial to discuss your treatment and management choices with your healthcare physician if you have an unruptured brain aneurysm. You and your healthcare practitioner may decide that it's best to closely monitor it and manage medical conditions that could further erode the blood vessel, or you may decide that getting therapy done as soon as possible is the best course of action. Your healthcare physician will consider the aneurysms among other things:

  • Size.
  • Location.
  • Risk of rupture.
