Most patients assessed using the Hunt and Hess Scale (Hunt & Hess, 1968) were classified into groups I-IlL According to world neurosurgical standards, group "0" patients are patients with a diagnosed intracranial aneurysm
that has not yet ruptured; groups I-III patients are patients in a relatively good general condition, with little surgical risk and good treatment results; and groups IV-V patients are in a very bad condition, with high surgical risk and unsatisfactory treatment results (Table 1).

Neither abdominal aortic aneurysms nor intracranial aneurysms
are associated with atherosclerosis.
We excluded any patients with extracranial aneurysm, the rupture of which does not lead to SAH, on the grounds that the fear of rupture they experienced may differ from that of the patients with intracranial aneurysm

Giant aneurysms represent a minority of intracranial aneurysms

Incidence of concomitant carotid artery stenosis (CAS) and intracranial aneurysm

Infectious intracranial aneurysms
(IIAs) are rare neurovascular lesions believed to represent 2% to 6% of all intracranial aneurysm
Using CTA source images and orthogonal multiplanar reformations that are produced at the CT console in 5 to 10 minutes, the radiologist may confirm the presence and location of an underlying intracranial aneurysm
as well as provide aneurysm morphology information (Figure 5).
Intraoperative hypothermia doesn't improve neurologic outcomes in patients undergoing intracranial aneurysm
repair--a finding with broad ramifications, given that cooling is now used in over half of aneurysm surgeries because many believe it's neuroprotective, said Michael M.
