About This Community:

WELCOME TO ANEURYSM THE COMMUNITY: This Patient-To-Patient Community is for discussions relating to Brain Aneurysms which is a weak or thin spot on a blood vessel in the brain that balloons out and fills with blood. The bulging aneurysm can put pressure on a nerve or surrounding brain tissue. It may also leak or rupture, spilling blood into the surrounding tissue (called a hemorrhage). Some cerebral aneurysms, particularly those that are very small, do not bleed or cause other problems. Cerebral aneurysms can occur anywhere in the brain, but most are located along a loop of arteries that run between the underside of the brain and the base of the skull.

chance of survival with brain surgery for aneurysm and heart failure?

hello.

a friend was admitted to icu a week ago for a rupture of blood vessel in her brain. she is 61.

while in there, drs found that she had an undetected heart attack a bit ago and one more just as the blood vessel ruptured. this caused half of her heart to become weakened. s

he has two aneurysms. one of which was coiled. theres still a lot of blood in her brain and liquid in her lungs.

she also developed a fever of 105.

today, drs said she had heart failure. her fever is slightly decreasing but her blood pressure fluctuates below what is expected.

what is her chance of survival given these conditions? shes been in for a week and seemed to get a bit better but everything seemed to go wrong today. I know nothing said is 100% because the patient isn't here to examine, but what can I expect?

thank you
