What is Brain Aneurysm Repair?

Brain aneurysm repair is a surgery that is basically used to repair the aneurysm. This is a weak area in the blood vessels which cause the blood vessels to explode or burst out sometimes. Aneurysm basically means an excessive localized swelling at the wall of an artery. It is basically caused due to –
Bleeding into the CSF around the brain.
• Bleeding into the brain that forms a collection of blood (Hematoma)

Head And Brain Surgery

Brain aneurysm means a weak part in the blood vessel in the brain that balloons up and fills with blood or sometimes also bursts out. Brain aneurysm mainly occurs in the underside of the brain and at the base of the skull.

To repair the brain aneurysm and other aneurysm there are two methods which are
1. In open craniotomy, clipping is done.
2. In endovascular repair, a coil or coiling and stenting is often used

In an aneurysm clipping:
You are given a general anaesthesia and a breathing tube. After that your scalp, skull and the covering of the brain is opened. A metal clip is placed at the base to prevent aneurysm from bursting.

In a endovascular repair:
You may be given general anaesthesia or just medicine to relax and not one that gives you sleep. A catheter is guided through a small cut, then contrast material is injected through catheter. Then thin metal wire are put in the aneurysm. After that they then coil into a mesh ball. During and after the procedure you might be given a blood thinner. These medicines protect you from dangerous blood clot.
