Early Detection and Screening of Brain Aneurysms

A brain aneurysm is in some ways similar to a heart attack. There is rarely a warning that a brain aneurysm is about to rupture. Individuals at high risk of having an aneurysm can be identified using non-invasive imaging technologies.

Current recommendations for pre-screening.

The Brain Aneurysm Foundation (http://bafound.org) suggests the following guidelines:

Screening where there is a family history of fusiform aneurysm:

Where there is a first degree relative with a known intracranial fusiform aneurysm, there are as yet no clear guidelines for screening, but there are reports of fusiform aneurysms occurring within a family. Screening where there is a family history of saccular aneurysm:

The Brain Aneurysm Foundation suggests that where two or more members of a family have been affected by a brain aneurysm, that aneurysm screenings should begin in an individual's 20's and be repeated every 5 to 10 years.

If you would like to know more about aneurysm screening, please contact Princeton Brain & Spine for further information.
