Early Detection Makes a Difference in the Treatment of Brain Aneurysms
Date:4/29/2010

aired with a craniotomy or endovascular therapy. One common treatment is clipping with a titanium clip. In other cases, brain aneurysms may be repaired with tiny coils, inserted typically into the femoral artery at the groin and then navigated through a catheter up to the brain, to the region of the aneurysm itself, where the coils are released to seal off the aneurysm.

Those suffering from a ruptured brain aneurysm will often have physical warning signs such as localized headache, nausea and vomiting, stiff neck, blurred or double vision, sensitivity to light and change in mental status. Early diagnosis of a ruptured aneurysm can make a significant difference in the recovery of the patient. To help ensure the proper diagnosis of brain aneurysms, The Brain Aneurysm Foundation has developed an educational video entitled Early Detection of Brain Aneurysms: Life vs. Death. Designed to educate primary care physicians, emergency room physicians and first responders on the early detection of brain aneurysms, this 20 minute video focuses on recognizing the symptoms related to a brain aneurysm and performing appropriate diagnostic brain imaging to determine if an aneurysm is present.

Early Detection of Brain Aneurysms: Life vs. Death is available now at www.bafound.org or by calling 888-272-4602. The program can be viewed for CME credit.
