Craniotomy and clipping have been robust treatments for ruptured cerebral aneurysm for more than 50 years, with satisfactory overall outcomes. Technical advances, such as developments in microsurgical tools and equipment, adjunctive therapy, and novel monitoring methods enable safer and more efficient treatment. However, overall surgical results have not shown any major improvements, as outcomes are mainly determined by the damage from initial bleeding, and new treatment strategies are not… CONTINUE READING
