OBJECTIVE Determining factors predictive of the natural risk of rupture of cerebral aneurysms is difficult because of the need to control for confounding variables. We studied factors associated with rupture in a study model of patients with multiple cerebral aneurysms, one aneurysm that had ruptured and one or more that had not, in which each patient served as their own internal control. METHODS We collected aneurysm location, one-dimensional measurements, and two-dimensional indices from… CONTINUE READING
