Brain aneurysm if not treated can lead to such serious complication as intracerebral hemorrhage. Intracerebral hemorrhage may occur only if patient has brain swelling, when the blood disintegrates and damaged areas of the brain can not function properly anymore.
Women have this disease more often than men. Patients over 30-60 years old are more prone to it.

The procedure allows to evaluate condition of blood vessels, detect brain disease and give exact diagnosis. In can also be diagnosed by MRI, CT scan and resonance imaging.
CT scan is a painless procedure, that can detect arterial problems. During magnetic resonance imaging patient is irradiated by special waves, after which three-dimensional image of the brain arteries is displayed on the computer screen.
Other surgeries are done with microscope and microsurgical equipment and they last for several hours, while their success is not guaranteed. During microsurgical surgery doctor tries to strengthen artery wall and eliminate chances of further bleeding in the damaged area of the brain. Postoperative complications are mainly associated with spasms of blood vessels and development of cerebral hypoxia. Lethal outcome may occur in case aneurysm is huge in size.
It is impossible to completely eliminate the possibility of future brain ruptures. Nevertheless active lifestyle and balanced diet raise chances of long life expectancy by several times. Person also needs to avoid any head injuries. This rule must be especially followed by those who have hereditary predisposition.
