In fact, the risk of the aneurysm exploding is only one in 100 each year. But if it does blow up, the chances of surviving are only one in two, and the odds of surviving without severe brain damage are only one in four.What is the recovery time for a brain aneurysm?
Blood clots naturally form around the coils, blocking the aneurysm. Because coiling does not involve opening the skull, it typically involves a shorter recovery period than clipping. A typical hospital stay can be as short as two days and the home recovery period can be as long as seven days.What is the prognosis for a brain aneurysm?
The prognosis of a brain aneurysm depends on the size and whether or not the aneurysm has ruptured. A patient with a small, unruptured brain aneurysm has a better prognosis than someone who has a large and/or ruptured brain aneurysm.
