Results of the Surgical Treatment of Anterior Circulation Aneurysms
Direct operative approaches for anterior circulation aneurysms have been commonly performed since the introduction of the operating microscope to neurosurgical operations. Consequently, operative results have improved. The results of anterior communicating artery (ACo) aneurysm could be cited as one good example of improvement [6, 7]. However, operative approaches and techniques are still the biggest problem in surgical treatment of intracranial aneurysms. Also, general complications can be troublesome, especially in older patients. These problems are closely matched to patient clinical outcome when compared with several secondary pathophysiological problems following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Pathophysiological problems include severe subarachnoid hematoma, intracerebral hematoma, vasospasm, etc.
