my 67 yr. old father has survived 3 brain aneurysm surgerys, the last one being 5 years ago. Now he has a 8mm in the basal area of his brain and its deep. They said it would be a risky surgery. Does anyone know anything about the basal area of the brain

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. 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.
