An intracranial aneurysm (IA) is a weak or thin area on a blood vessel in the brain that balloons as it fills with blood. Genetic factors can influence the risk of developing an aneurism. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and IA in Kazakh population. The patients were genotyped for 60 single nucleotide polymorphisms. Genotyping was performed on the QuantStudio 12K Flex (Life Technologies). A linear regression analysis found 13 SNPs' significant association with development and rupture of
the rs1800956 polymorphism of the ENG gene, rs1756 46 polymorphism of the JDP2 gene, variant rs1800255 of the COL3A1, rs4667622 of the UBR3, rs2374513 of the c12orf75, rs3742321 polymorphism of the StAR, the rs3782356 polymorphism of MLL2 gene, rs3932338 to 214 kilobases downstream of PRDM9, rs7550260 polymorphism of the ARHGEF, rs1504749 polymorphism of the SOX17, the rs173686 polymorphism of CSPG2 gene, rs6460071 located on LIMK1 gene, and the rs4934 polymorphism of SERPINA3. A total of 13 SNPs were identified as potential genetic markers for the development and risk of rupture of aneurysms in the Kazakh population. Similar results were obtained after adjusting for the confounding factors of arterial hypertension and age.

This study was designed to collect a large series of patients with aneurysms treated endovascularly to analyze hemodynamic factors that affect aneurysm recanalization.
The discipline studying genetic composition of populations and effects of factors such as GENETIC SELECTION, population size, MUTATION, migration, and GENETIC DRIFT on the frequencies of various GENOTYPES and PHENOTYPES using a variety of GENETIC TECHNIQUES.
Abnormal outpouching in the wall of intracranial blood vessels. Most common are the saccular (berry) aneurysms located at branch points in CIRCLE OF WILLIS at the base of the brain. Vessel rupture results in SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Giant aneurysms (>2.5 cm in diameter) may compress adjacent structures, including the OCULOMOTOR NERVE.

The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
The change in gene frequency in a population due to migration of gametes or individuals (ANIMAL MIGRATION) across population barriers. In contrast, in GENETIC DRIFT the cause of gene frequency changes are not a result of population or gamete movement.
