Hi so what is your response?
Expert:  Dr. Frank replied 1 year ago.

If you have any information such as the MRI/MRA report, please paste it in leaving out personal identity theft info. The approach to aneurysms is based on a few factors. Size location and shape are the big three. They determine the approach whether it is surgical with a large craniotomy or small hole through the skull with an endoscope. Or to seal the aneurysm from within using a small catheter to bring up inside the artery itself. Get back to me to discuss or if satisfied please remember to rate this answer. Dr Frank
