Conference paper


Even today, amid significant developments in microsurgical techniques, the surgical results in cases of giant intracranial aneurysms are not satisfactory and there are many cases for which nothing but conservative therapy can be used. Over a period of 25 years, we have actively pursued a policy of surgical treatment for giant aneurysms whenever possible. In the present paper, we report the results of surgical treatment in our giant aneurysm cases and the surgical techniques which we currently use for such aneurysms at various sites in the cerebrum.
