Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aneurysms of diameter above 25 mm, determined as giant aneurysms, are thought to be surgically difficult. The most common symptom of the presence of aneurysm is subarachnoidal hemorrhage. Giant aneurysm may cause focal neurological symptoms, very rarely may show symptoms of intracranial hypertension. In the presented case a 47-year old woman after the first epilepsy attack the dominated symptoms were those of intracranial hypertension. CT suggested brain tumour of 70 mm diameter. Brain angiography revealed giant aneurysm of the left middle cerebral artery. After having considered differed method of therapeutic management, microsurgical operative technique was applied in general anesthesia with brain protection.
