Incidence, Management, and Outcome of Patients with Premature Rupture of Cerebral Aneurysms During Surgery
Despite the routine application of microsurgical techniques, the intraoperative rupture of an intracranial arterial aneurysm represents an unexpected and sometimes disastrous event. Although every neurosurgeon has encountered intraoperative rupture, the neurosurgi- cal literature on this topic is surprisingly sparse. Few authors have tried to determine the incidence, the criteria of management, and the impact of intraoperative aneurysm rupture on the subsequent outcome of patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage [2,4,9,10,14]. In this study we report the results of a retrospective investigation of 85 intraoperative aneurysm ruptures occurring among 204 surgically treated aneurysms.
