Informing preventative treatment decisions for unruptured intracranial aneurysms

Takeaway

  • Several factors increase the risk of complications from endovascular treatment (EVT) and NST (neurosurgical treatment) used as a preventative therapy for unruptured aneurysms, including female sex, age and diabetes.

Why this matters

    Studies assessing safety are inconsistent, therefore a large-scale meta-analysis may help identify specific risk factors.
