Possibly: Depends what the indication for the bronchoscopy was? If a clear ct still does not provide an answer for whatever your underlying complaint/symptom or sign is, then a bronchoscopy may still be indicated. If so, they may need to perform this procedure with you placed under a general anesthetic to expedite the process and keep you safe and comfortable. Good luck.

Rarely, if at all: Versed, also known as midazolam, is a benzodiazepine. This is the class of drugs valium belongs to also. These drugs have sedative and anxiolytic properties and are extremely safe when taken as prescribed, or administered by a healthcare provider in a monitored setting. From a pharmacologic perspective, benzodiazepines have a large margin of safety.

No: In fact, if you were to have either a 'clipping' of the aneurysm by a neurosurgeon, or a 'coiling' of the aneurysm by an interventional radiologist, you would need to have a general anesthetic for the procedure. So, in of itself, general anesthesia, with appropriate monitoring and blood pressure management, is very safe for patients with cerebral aneurysms.
