How Common Is Brain Aneurysm With PKDThe most serious possible complication of PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease). It is a bulging blood vessel due to weakening of the blood vessel wall.

How common is brain aneurysm with PKD?

Approximately 3 to 7 percent of young adults with ADPKD may have brain aneurysms, and the frequency increases to 12 to 15 percent if someone else in the patient’s family has had an intracranial aneurysm. Compared with the general population, the risk of developing an aneurysm in ADPKD is approximately five-fold greater. People with a first-degree relative with a history of intracranial aneurysm or subarachnoid hemorrhage are at the highest risk of forming an aneurysm. How serious is brain aneurysm with PKD?

Most brain aneurysms cause no symptoms and may only be discovered during tests for another, usually unrelated, condition. In other cases, an unruptured aneurysm will cause problems by pressing on areas in the brain. When this happens, the person may suffer from severe headaches, blurred vision, changes in speech, and neck pain, depending on what areas of the brain are affected and how bad the aneurysm is.

However, aneurysms can rupture, causing bleeding into the brain. If not treated before the aneurysm ruptures, this can lead to irreversible brain damage or death. Aneurysm rupture occurs most often in people with larger aneurysms (>10 mm). The most common symptom is a severe headache that begins suddenly, often with a pop, frequently with nausea and vomiting.

How to get rid of brain aneurysm?

Your doctor may want to continue to observe your condition rather than do surgery. If your aneurysm is large or causing pain or other symptoms, though, or if you have had a previous ruptured aneurysm, your doctor may recommend surgery.

Since surgery has a high risk of death and cannot solve the underlying problem, we prefer to treating this condition by Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which aims at improving blood circulation. Based on TCM, we innovated several natural therapies. If you want more detailed information, you can leave a message below.
