Prognosis for Cerebral Aneurysm

Prognosis for Cerebral Aneurysm: The prognosis for a patient with a ruptured cerebral aneurysm depends on the extent and location of the aneurysm, the person's age, general health, and neurological condition. Some individuals with a ruptured cerebral aneurysm die from the initial bleeding. Other individuals with cerebral aneurysm recover with little or no neurological deficit. Early diagnosis and treatment are important. (Source: excerpt from NINDS Cerebral Aneurysm Information Page: NINDS)
