Wink Brain aneurysm - coiling

Early last year I discovered I had an aneurysm. This was a chance finding during investigations for a stroke like episode. The aneurysm had nothing to do with the stroke but it showed up on a CT scan. I was obviously very frightened, but luckily had a fantastic neurologist who arranged for me to see a top class surgeon. The aneurysm was coiled with platinum in October 2008 with minimally invasive surgery and I have recently had a follow up scan which showed a positive result. JUST WANTED TO SAY IF YOU FIND YOU HAVE AN ANEURYSM AND ARE OFFERED COILING - TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY IT IS WELL WORTH IT.

Re: Brain aneurysm - coiling

so glad the coiling/clots filled in the spaces of your annie. i had the very same procedure for my annie in 05. the thing is, you can only have that coiling option(and also that clipping too) if your particular aneurysm actually has whats called a 'neck' on it? its kind of like looking at a partially deflated baloon type of look to it where you have that longer stem, then the bulge out? otherwise your options can be very limited as far as what can even be done with any aneurysm. we were BOTH very lucky that ours just did actually have that liitle neck there. i am glad things worked as well with yours as they have with mine tho. thats one hell of a big old WHEW, isn't it? hope things continue to go well for you,Marcia
