Brain Aneurism Treatment
Treatment must be undertaken by a qualified cardiologist.Brain aneurysms are generally treated surgically. A metal clip is secured around the base of the aneurysm. Another type of treatment involves 'packing' the aneurysm with microcoils (small, flexible wire coils). These are delivered and inserted into the aneurysm using a catheter.
