Cerebral Aneurysm (Intracranial Aneurysm)

by Carlo Raj, MD

Cerebral aneurysms are dilatations within intracranial vasculature, usually occurring at areas of vessel wall weakness. These lesions are often clinically silent and found incidentally, and some can be devastating. Many are located anteriorly, usually at bifurcations along the circle of Willis. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) usually occurs with rupture and is associated with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. Nearly 25 % are dead within the first 24 hours, while 50% die within the following three months.

I enjoyed learning about this very much. I also liked how Dr. Carlo Raj explained everything. I am not a medical student, but I am a high school student and hope to learn a lot more about neurology
