Prevalence of Intracranial Aneurysm in Hong Kong Chinese

2014-08-27 03:15:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Intracranial aneurysm (localized dilatation in weakened blood vessel wall) rupture is a catastrophic disease, with half of the victims died and many of the survivors disabled. There is currently no data in the literature for the Chinese population concerning the prevalence, characteristics (location and size) and risk of harboring an unruptured intracranial aneurysm. In this study, the investigators aim to study the population prevalence and characteristics (location and size) of intracranial aneurysm in Hong Kong Chinese, and its cost-effectiveness. The screening is carried out using magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), with a 3-T magnetic resonance system, which is a well-established non-invasive method for intracranial aneurysm detection.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p841)

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.

Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.

Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.

Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
