Early Detection Makes a Difference in the Treatment of Brain Aneurysms

Bret Michael's Recent Subarachnoid Hemorrhage Offers Opportunity to Raise Awareness of Symptoms of Brain Aneurysms

Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 29, 2010 - On April 23, 2010, Poison lead singer and reality television personality Bret Michaels suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Seventy to eighty percent of spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhages are caused by ruptured cerebral aneurysms, and more than 25,000 people in the United States will be affected by a ruptured brain aneurysm this year. By raising awareness of the symptoms of unruptured brain aneurysms and helping first responders diagnose ruptured aneurysms, The Brain Aneurysm Foundation hopes to reduce the incidence of brain aneurysm ruptures and save lives.

An estimated 3-6 million people in the U.S. have an unruptured brain aneurysm, a weak bulging on the wall of a brain artery, which can occur at any age. Of those patients, about 25,000 individuals annually will suffer a ruptured brain aneurysm, which causes bleeding, or hemorrhaging, into the area surrounding the brain, the subarachnoid space. Half of all people who experience a massive hemorrhage do not survive, and of those that survive, most live with severe long-term deficits due to damaged brain cells. Patients who survive a subarachnoid hemorrhage have a longer recovery time than those with unruptured brain aneurysms, and recovery times and long-term disabilities are proportional to the severity of the hemorrhage.

Most people with unruptured brain aneurysms are completely asymptomatic; however, some people may experience warning signs which might suggest an aneurysm, such as cranial nerve palsy, dilated pupils, double vision, pain above and behind the eye and localized headaches. If a brain aneurysm is diagnosed early with proper screening, it is possible for a rupture to be prevented.

With early detection, most brain aneurysms requiring treatment can be rep
