Unruptured intracranial aneurysms, with guests Aravind Reddy, MD, and Hesham Masoud, MD, on Upstate's "The Informed Patient" podcast

Bulges in brain arteries can sometimes be left alone

A bulge or weakness in a blood vessel of the brain usually causes no symptoms. In a minority of cases, they can rupture, threatening death. These intracranial aneurysms are sometimes discovered during medical imaging of the brain. A person with an aneurysm is faced with medical decisions, including treatment options, explained here by Upstate's Aravind Reddy, MD, and Hesham Masoud, MD. Reddy is an assistant professor of neurology, and Masoud is an associate professor of neurology, neurosurgery and radiology.
