 Irrespective of the Size, One-third of All Brain Aneurysms Rupture

Why is it that previous studies have not reached the same result if it is so obvious?

"It is difficult to conduct reliable epidemiological research in brain aneurysms. The past 10 years have seen a distortion in the field due to a very limited group of researchers determining the direction for research. Now the situation is clearly changing, and clinically reasonable, population-based studies using non-selected data are on the rise again," states Docent Miikka Korja of the HUCS neurosurgery clinic.

Finland has a strong tradition of studying the prevalence, risk factors and care of brain aneurysms, and the Helsinki University Central Hospital is one of the world's leading units to provide treatment for brain aneurysms. Major studies in the field published by Finnish researchers include the world's most extensive twin study on the hereditability of subarachnoid haemorrhage, the largest follow-up study on subarachnoid haemorrhages among diabetics, the most extensive study on the life expectancy of subarachnoid haemorrhage survivors and a study on the risk factors for subarachnoid haemorrhages using the most extensive population data.
