Abstract

Unruptured intracranial aneurysms (UIA) are a common finding, occurring in about 2% of the population, making them very likely to be seen by most practitioners, and present a challenge in the recommendations for optimal management and screening. The consequences of aneurysm rupture are dire, with high likelihood of significant morbidity and mortality. Most aneurysms do not rupture and patients harboring these lesions often remain asymptomatic. There are effective surgical and endovascular interventions to prevent rupture, but these procedures carry a risk of adverse complications. This article addresses the challenges of screening and management of UIAs.
