Hi!
The basal area of the brain consists of thalamus, basal ganglia, substantia nigra, cerebellum, hippocampus and other such structures which regulate a person’s heart beat, respiration, blood pressure and other vital functions such as sensory and motor control, memory etc. Hence, this is a risky area to navigate through as post surgery a person may lose all vital body functions. Do discuss this with your father’s doctors. Clips are not safe as they may injure the neighboring areas as there is little space to maneover. Clips can be placed through a proper brain surgery. Coils are placed from inside the aneurysm through blood vessels in groin or arm. Hence, this is a safe option. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
