ABSTRACT
OBJECTIVES: The best results of treating intracranial aneurysms can be achieved with treating aneurysm before they rupture. Some recent reports about the risk of the bleeding of the unruptured intracranial aneurysm(UIA) being too low(0.05% per year) compared with 1~2% of the previously reported bleeding probability, casts the question about the need for treatment of the UIAs. The purpose of this report is to review the recent reports about the risk of rupture of the UIAs and to assess the morbidity and mortality associated with surgical treatment for UIAs.
Key Words: Unruptured intracranial aneurysm; Bleeding risk; Surgical treatment
