What Are Brain Aneurysms?
An aneurysm is a balloon bulge filled with blood that is attached to the walls of blood vessels. It is a result of the weakening of the blood vessel, which can be caused by hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, or even genetics. If they rupture, they are usually related to brain complications, leading to strong headaches, blindness or eye misalignment. Once detected, there are treatments, going from open surgery to less invasive methods. Click here for more information.
