Subarachnoid haemorrhage remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Of those suffering the condition, 15% are known to die before they reach hospital and half of all patients die within 1 month of presentation. Of those patients who survive the initial 30 days, just under half are believed to remain dependent for their normal activities of daily living. In the vast majority of cases, SAH results from the rupture of an intracranial aneurysm. After patient… 
Surgical Management of Giant Intracranial Aneurysms: Overall Results of a Large Series.
TLDR
Microneurosurgical techniques still maintain a significant role for most GIAs, with a high durability and acceptable rate of morbidity and mortality.
An Overview of the Endovascular Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms
TLDR
This chapter first discusses key evidence for this development and presents the equipment and procedures for standard unassisted coiling of cerebral aneurysms, and discusses deconstructive and combined endovascular therapy options, along with necessary occlusion testing.
Aneurysmal SAH: current management and complications associated with treatment and disease.
The purpose of this article is to give an overview of the management of the most common complications encountered during subarachnoid hemorrhage and endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms.
Midterm outcomes of intracranial aneurysms with bleb formation with densely coiling of the aneurismal neck or entire aneurysm
TLDR
The numbers of coils and surgery-related complications were smaller when embolizing the aneurysmal neck than the entire aneurYSm, showing potential advantages of embolization of theaneurysm neck.
Cell Therapy for Intracranial Aneurysms: A Review.
TLDR
Ten preclinical studies involving cell therapy to treat aneurysms were published between 1999 and 2014 and the results are summarized and advances, shortcomings, and the future of cell therapy for intracranial aneurYSms are discussed.
Design and biocompatibility of endovascular aneurysm filling devices.
TLDR
This review presents several metal, polymeric, or hybrid aneurysm filling methods, including those that have been approved for clinical use, and some that are currently in development, and discusses the success or failure of current and past technologies.
Prediction of outcomes in young adults with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage.
TLDR
The multimodal approach with aggressive medical management, early intervention, and surgical treatment might contribute to favorable long-term outcomes in patients with poor expected outcomes.
Interventional Neuroradiological Procedures—A Review for Anaesthetists
TLDR
The aim of this article is to provide a description and contemporary analysis of the common interventional neuroradiology procedures relevant to the anaesthetist and to cover the management of intracranial aneurysms, cerebral vasospasm following intrac Cranial haemorrhage and spinal arteriovenous malformations.
Initial experience with Penumbra Coil 400 versus standard coils in embolization of cerebral aneurysms: a retrospective review
TLDR
Compared with conventional coils, the PC 400 is more efficient in the embolization of cerebral aneurysms, achieving greater packing density with fewer coils and less time without compromising safety.
Reduced 2-year aneurysm retreatment and costs among patients treated with flow diversion versus non-flow diversion embolization: A Premier Healthcare Database retrospective cohort study
TLDR
It is suggested that PEDs may potentially reduce downstream retreatment rates and costs and further work is required to improve identification of patient subgroups that could benefit from PED over non-PED treatments both initially and during follow-up.

Complications of endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms.
TLDR
Balloon-assisted coiling (BAC) was not associated with an increased complication rate and vessel perforation and thromboembolic stroke are significant risks of endovascular treatment, especially after SAH.
Factors affecting outcome after endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms
TLDR
EVT dramatically reduces the risk of rebleeding in patients with subarachnoid haemorrhage, and treatment risks and rates of incomplete occlusions are increased in ruptured in comparison with unruptured aneurysms.
Unruptured intracranial aneurysms--risk of rupture and risks of surgical intervention.
TLDR
The likelihood of rupture of unruptured intracranial aneurysms that were less than 10 mm in diameter was exceedingly low among patients in group 1 and was substantially higher among those in group 2, and the risk of morbidity and mortality related to surgery greatly exceeded the 7.5-year risk of rupture.
Endovascular coiling versus neurosurgical clipping for people with aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage
TLDR
To compare the effects of endovascular coiling versus neurosurgical clipping in people with aneurysmal SAH on poor outcome, rebleeding, neurological deficit, and treatment complications, four randomised trials were included.
Electrothrombosis of saccular aneurysms via endovascular approach. Part 2: Preliminary clinical experience.
TLDR
It is believed that this new technology is a viable alternative in the management of patients with high-risk intracranial saccular aneurysms and may also play an important role in the occlusion of aneurYSms in the acute phase of subarachnoid hemorrhage.
SUBARACHNOID HAEMORRHAGE AND INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSMS: WHAT NEUROLOGISTS NEED TO KNOW
  • P. Kirkpatrick
  • Medicine
    Journal of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry
  • 2002
TLDR
The incidence of stroke caused by subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) remains constant, with intracranial aneurysm rupture causing SAH in up to 5000 patients in the UK per annum, and recognition is of crucial importance since intervention can radically alter outcome.
Endovascular and surgical treatment of unruptured cerebral aneurysms: Comparison of risks
TLDR
Coil embolization of unruptured cerebral aneurysms seems to be associated with significantly fewer complications than surgical clipping, and more long‐term data on aneurYSm rupture rates are required to confirm efficacy.
Prospective analysis of aneurysm treatment in a series of 103 consecutive patients when endovascular embolization is considered the first option.
TLDR
Surgical clipping can offer better results than CE, even for more complex aneurysms of the anterior circulation, especially for those involving the middle cerebral artery cases.
Guglielmi detachable coiling for intracranial aneurysms: the story so far.
TLDR
GDC embolization has evolved as a result of both clinical experience and the introduction of technological improvements, and is now better at selecting aneurysms appropriate for coiling, which also have wide necks.
Endovascular Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysms With Guglielmi Detachable Coils: Analysis of Midterm Angiographic and Clinical Outcomes
TLDR
Increasing angiographic stability is demonstrated in treated aneurysms up to 3 years from coil embolization, suggesting that follow-up angiography until this time is advisable.
