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.

Does anyone have any info on OnyxHD500 as an option to treat aneurysms?

The short answer would describe it as similar to having a angiogram where by a cather is threaded to the brain blood vessels to where a aneyrusm (unruptured) is located.  A glue like substance containing partial metal particulates are injected.  The glue solidifies and the aneurysm is sealed, hopefully permanently.  It is relatively new so it's track record is not fully understood.  It hoped that it would be a better protocol then other procedures such as clipping, stenting, or coiling.  Each has its pros and cons.  Hope this helps.
