How is a Brain Aneurysm Diagnosed?


Some warning signs can be observed in people with aneurysm rupture and bleeding.

Persistent headache in any part of the head

Nausea and vomiting followed by nausea

Stiffness in the neck (patient cannot bend his head forward easily)

Visual impairment and double vision

sensitivity to light

numbness

If there is no bleeding in the aneurysm, no symptoms may be observed in the majority of patients. Some or all of the listed symptoms are observed in a small percentage of patients.

Paralysis of the optic nerves (it can be understood from the involuntary drooping of the eyelid and inability to move it easily.)

Unobserved dilated pupils in both eyes

Headache that does not subside in one area

Increasing feeling of weakness and lethargy

Brain Aneurysm Treatment

As in all treatments, the patient and the specialist should act together in this treatment. If the situation is not favorable to this, the decision is made with the patient's closest relative in cases where the patient is unconscious. The most appropriate treatment method is recommended by the specialist according to the current condition of the patient.

With the non-surgical method, if the aneurysm is small and carries little risk of enlargement and bleeding, it may be advisable to follow its course only. It is important to repeat diagnostic tests as this process continues and these individuals are still at risk of annual bleeding.

Open surgery is a technique that has been applied to patients with aneurysms for a long time and has an important place in the treatment spectrum. The main purpose of the operation is to close the aneurysm, and a small opening is created in the skull of the patient who is anesthetized with general anesthesia. The operation is performed through this opening and the bone piece removed after the operation is placed back in its place.
