I was diagnosed with a 4mm cerebral aneurysm and just went for angiogram ct and I am waiting the results I am a nervous wreck. I was also diagnosed with chiari and cervical disc disease . How do they treat cerebral aneurysms ? I am new to this and have a million queations
After having a diagnostic arteriogram, the Doctor will thread a catheter to the site of the aneurysm and fill the sac with a glue like substance. It is a relatively new procedure but seems to be working well. As I understand, Hershey Med is the pioneer of this procedure. Based on my experience at this Hospital, I would be comfortable with their recommendations.
I have a 4mm annie- don't wory if it doesn't bother u they just watch it- this size is smaller than a pea. I have known I have it for almost 8 yrs -go for my yearly CT w/ contrast & they watch it. So don't panic until u hear something
