    "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.

    "Endografts Help Prevent Deaths from Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms"

  • Every year, roughly 3 9 percent of Americans between the ages of 60 and 70 suffer an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Large aneurysms are prone to rupture. Ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms are the 13th leading cause of death in the U
