Cerebral aneurysms are vascular abnormalities in which a bulge in an artery in or near the brain is formed when the arterial walls are weak. The dilation of the aneurysm may vary in size, ranging from less than 0.5mm to greater than 25mm. Unruptured cerebral aneurysms are often asymptomatic and found incidentally upon neuroimaging or autopsy (Jersey, 2020). On a global scale, the prevalence of cerebral aneurysms is approximately 3.2%. The mean age of patients is 50 years old and there is a 1:1 gender ratio. However, the ratio is approaching 2:1 with increasing female predominance over the age of 50 (Jersey, 2020).
