Surgeons make an incision in the back of the head through which they place a small metal clip or clips along the neck of the aneurysm. Clipping the aneurysm prevents blood from entering the aneurysm sac and reduces the risk for future bleeding.
Cerebral Artery Bypass
Reroutes blood flow around the weakened artery using a blood vessel from another part of your body, usually the leg. The new artery bypasses the damaged blood vessels and restores healthy blood flow to the brain.
Endovascular Embolization or Coiling
Using high resolution images, your surgeon inserts tiny coils in the weakened artery to block or reduce the flow of blood to the aneurysm. This procedure reduces the risk of rupture or future bleeding into the brain.
