Genetic information such as this, which can be obtained expeditiously at the time of diagnosis, may be used as a helpful adjunct to other clinical information aimed at predicting and favorably modifying the clinical course of persons with intracranial aneurysms.
Increasing incidence of glioblastoma multiforme and meningioma, and decreasing incidence of Schwannoma (2000–2008): Findings of a multicenter Australian study
A direct, uniform, and centralized approach to monitoring primary brain tumor incidence by subtype is recommended, including the introduction of nonmalignant data collection.

It is confirmed that awake craniotomy using the ‘asleep–awake–asleep’ anaesthetic protocol is a generally safe and well-tolerated procedure associated overall with satisfactory patients' experiences and neurological outcomes.
A multicenter study of primary brain tumor incidence in Australia (2000-2008).
A significant increase in primary malignant brain tumors from 2000 to 2008 was observed; this appears to be largely due to an increase in malignant tumor incidence in the ≥65-year age group.
Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase T-786C Single Nucleotide Polymorphism: A Putative Genetic Marker Differentiating Small Versus Large Ruptured Intracranial Aneurysms
The data suggest that among persons with known intracranial aneurysms, eNOS T-786C genotype may be a factor influencing the size at which anAneurysm ruptures, a finding that should be taken into consideration along with other anatomic features of the aneurYSm.
The presence of tandem endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene polymorphisms identifying brain aneurysms more prone to rupture.
The authors have uniquely identified a set of tandem eNOS gene variations whose presence can be used to identify patients with aneurysms likely to rupture and believe that if this finding is reproducible in a large multicenter study, a rapid and cost-effective screening tool will become available to clinicians as a genetic aid to predict the risks of rupture in patients presenting with unruptured intracranial aneurYSms.

The current findings suggest that in cerebral arteries, endothelial HSP90 plays an important role in modulation of basal NO-mediated signaling and may be particularly important in stress-induced up-regulation of H SP90 with subsequent alteration of vasomotor function.
