The endovascular treatment of unruptured intracranial aneurysms is controversial because the natural history of unruptured intracranial aneurysms remains uncertain, and both surgical and endovascular treatment carries risk (11).

Several independent investigators have shown that 9p21 is a risk factor not only for CAD but also for abdominal aortic aneurysms and intracranial aneurysms. Neither abdominal aortic aneurysms nor intracranial aneurysms are associated with atherosclerosis.
Intracranial aneurysms usually represent a progressive degenerative process affecting the vessel wall.
"To our knowledge, this is the first time that the incidence of unruptured intracranial aneurysms and the prevalence of subarachnoid hemorrhage has been established for one large population cohort,'' he said.
"However, the incidence of unruptured intracranial aneurysms is another story." This may explain why previous studies have resulted in a wide range of estimates of risk.

A mathematical model for evaluating cost effectiveness of screening for asymptomatic intracranial aneurysms in the general population determined there is a quality-adjusted life-year reduction for presumed ICA prevalence rates as high as 10%, given an annual rate of rupture of 0.05%.
