Brain Aneurysm is a medical condition wherein the blood vessels that carry blood to the brain are seen to bulge outward or balloon outwards from the weaker regions of the walls of the particular blood vessel. Circle of Willis, which is a network of all the blood vessels that run into the brain, located at the lower end of the brain is usually the most common location of Brain Aneurysm.
Arthero sclerosis, brain trauma and infections to the artery walls may be the causes for a Brain Aneurysm. Sometimes, abnormal blood flow through the artery due to pressure fluctuations or the like can also result in such a condition. Tumours and abuse of cocaine can also be the cause for Brain Aneurysm.
It happens quickly and does not give a lot of time gap to respond to it. It might quickly turn into a stroke, a brain damage or even death.
Symptoms of a ruptured brain aneurysm often occurs suddenly. If you have any of the these symptoms or notice them in someone you know, take emergency services right now:
- A sudden, severe headache that is different from past headaches.
- Neck pain.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Sensitivity to light.
- Weakness and numbness.
- Difficulty speaking.
- Fainting or loss of consciousness.
A CT scan of the head, a CTA or an MRI may suffice to find the condition. A cerebral angiogram or an angiography might be suggested as to the condition in which the patient is in.
The primary aim of the treatment is to prevent the rupturing of the balloon or to stop the bleeding if it has already ruptured. Mostly surgical methods are required.
