Great question: It would be good to have the opinion from a few specialists. The opinions from vascular surgery and hematology/oncology are very useful. I would like to know if a procedure could be done. I would also like know if he would need to be on life-long anti-coagulation. My patients who have a chronic dissecting aortic aneurysm and an internal carotid aneurysm are on life-long anti-coagulation.

Neurosurgeon: Needs to see patient and films to see if treatment needed. Coil embolization may be possible.
