These are under high pressure and can rupture leading to high mortality and morbidity. Brain avms occur with about 1/10th the frequency.These are a tangle of arteries and veins, where the blood from the arteries goes straight into the veins. These can also bleed and lead to serious problems. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Have it evaluated: It is certainly possible that some of the headaches may be related to surgical healing. However, there are well known long term sequelae from brain aneurysms-particularly if there was a rupture. Delayed hydrocephalus is one of those where the fluid in the ventricles does not absorb as well. This can easily be evaluated by your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
