As per statistics, the annual incidence of Cerebral Aneurysms is between 6 and 16/100,000 population. That is, roughly 76,500-204,100 new cases are reported in India each year. A cerebral aneurysm, also known as a brain aneurysm or an intracranial aneurysm, refers to the abnormal or weak spot on a blood vessel that triggers ballooning or outward bulging of the arterial wall. The bulged aneurysm may exert pressure on a nerve and the surrounding tissues of the brain. In rare cases, the balloon might rupture and blood may spill into the surrounding tissues, causing a haemorrhage. A cerebral aneurysm generally occurs in the network of blood vessels at the base of the brain, also called the circle of Willis. There are three types of Cerebral Aneurysms, known as Saccular Aneurysm, Lateral Aneurysm and Fusiform Aneurysm. All of these different kinds of aneurysms have their own kind of intensity of occurrence.
