    "Brain Aneurysms Successfully Treated Without Open Surgery"

  • Brain aneurysms affect 2 5 percent of the U.S. population. Half of ruptured aneurysms result in death, and a quarter more result in stroke or neurological deficit. Radiologists are now using a nonsurgical procedure called detachable coil embolization to isolate and fill weakened cerebral blood vessels that are in danger of rupturing.
