Brain Aneurysms: What Primary Care Providers Need to Know

As many as 1 in 20 people develop a dangerous bulge in a brain artery, often revealed incidentally by neuroimaging, so PCPs need a solid grasp of the first steps in evaluation. This presentation from neurosurgeon Ethan A. Winkler, MD, PhD, offers data-driven guidelines on assessing a patient's risk, covering factors that range from alcohol consumption and family history to the location, size and shape of the aneurysm. Winkler also covers treatment options, how to tailor the strategy to the individual patient and when to refer.
