In a few weeks I will have about 13 Platunum coils placed in a 30mm aneurysm
in my RICA, a minimal neck is there, but more fusiform.
If he (my neurosurgeon) has to place a silicone ballon to block the R ICA,
We found a 12% decrease in perfusion the right posterior area of my brain.
As a ICU Nurse I am greatly concerned about a stroke (Im 37).
My question is, if that is occluded, how long will it take for collateral
flow and is there anything I can do to increase my ability to make them grow
This genetic for me, about 15 of us have cerebral Aneurysm or severe
vascular disease, but otherwise healthy. I run, weight lift, good health
(well, until now!!)
Any input is welcome.
