Some possible risks of surgery of the brain are blood clot, brain swelling, brain infection, seizure, stroke, and memory loss. Some risks to the anesthesia are breathing problems and allergic reaction the medicine. The reward of brain surgery is that it is uncommon for an aneurysm to bleed again.

Coiling s main purpose is to isolate an aneurysm from the normal circulation without blocking any small arteries nearby or making the main blood vessel smaller. They send a catheter through your blood stream, mainly by the groin, and then up through your blood vessels near your neck. Once they reach the patients brain, the coil is detached and put in the aneurysm to stop the blood flow. The coil will remain inside the patient permanently.

When an aneurysm ruptures, blood is released into the space between the skull and brain. The faster you get to the hospital, the better when an aneurysm ruptures. When you have a brain aneurysm that hasn’t ruptured, you don’t have any symptoms. If brain aneurysms is in your family history, its good to get checked every so often.

Microsurgical clipping dates back to be the oldest method to treat an aneurysm. During clipping, they add a small metal clip towards the opening of the aneurysm to stop the blood from flowing and seal the blood flow from leaving the brain. The first aneurysm treated by microsurgical clipping dates back to 1937.

Good info, but make sure you are proving something in your thesis - perhaps the "mysteriousness" of brain aneurysms since they seem to occur without signs or symptoms in some cases.

Clipping is mainly done when the aneurysm puffs up like a balloon. There isn’t a set shape or size for an aneurysm. They all vary and are different. When an aneurysm grows like a balloon, the easiest thing is to clip it at the bottom to isolate it so the bleeding stops. The procedure on how to operate on an aneurysm is determined by the severity and the patient’s health.

The main factors that determine what treatment option to use depend on the size, shape, location, and neck geometry. Coiling is usually used for older patients. Clipping usually has an outcome of a longer life. There isn’t a set treatment option, it all depends on the factors so you can outweigh on option.

In every surgery comes a risk, but it also comes with a reward. Some of the main risks are allergic reactions to anesthesia, stroke, seizure, and causing the brain to swell. Another risk is that the procedure didn’t do its job and the aneurysm is still bleeding. Aneurysms that are clipped will most likely not grow again. Patients do check ups every so often to see if the aneurysm is still secured.

During coiling, they use a catheter and microcatheter. The coil is connected to the microcatheter. They put the microcatheter through your blood vessels, mainly by the pelvis. The coil is then electronically uncoiled to seal off the aneurysm. Some aneurysms require more than one coil to be completely sealed. The nice thing about the coil procedure is that it can be performed on unruptured aneurysms and ruptured aneurysms.
Nick Naret's comment, March 13, 2013 7:52 AM
Coiling is a good treatment option for older people who cannot undergo surgery. Coiling has been being done since 1991 to treat aneurysms. Not only can coiling treat ruptured aneurysms, it can treat unruptured aneurysms. When getting a coil put into an aneurysm to stop it, it may take multiple coils to completely stop the bleeding.

There are two main treatment procedures for a brain aneurysm. They are open surgical clipping and coiling. The open surgical clipping is done by a neurosurgeon. He makes an incision through the bone and put a clip on the aneurysm. Doing this stops blood from flowing into the aneurysm. Coiling is usually done when the aneurysm is ruptured. They put a catheter on your hip then run a coil through your blood vessels into the ruptured aneurysm.
