I have to have an angiogram post cerebral aneurysm coiling 8 months ago. Routine check. Is angiogram a risky procedure. Im having mine under ga?
Low risk: All risk factors must be considered. Heart, lung, kidney, diabetes and medications. Allergies small, puncture of artery and catheter passed to inject the radio opaque dye. Ask about ct angio or MRI as followup? Perhaps thought is to do more coils? Ask why general anes? Most are local with some sedatives. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Does siemens avanto " MRA with and without contrast SPGR post coil protocol" has ability to detect small 1 to 2 mm cerebral aneurysm? Expl protocol
More factors: MRA's ability to detect a 1-2 mm aneurysm also depends on the magnet's field strength, number of phase-encoded steps (affects resolution), and acquisition parameters. Given optimal conditions (the above as well as no patient movement), the detection rate of aneurysms larger than 1 mm is comparable for MRA and digital subtraction angiography. www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/007269.htm ...Read more
Bad luck: Aneurysms can run in families occasionally. If you have two first degree relatives with documented cerebral aneurysms, then it's possible it is hereditary. There are conditions such as marfan's syndrome and polycystic kidneys and head injury that are also associated with aneurysms. In the absence of those, bad luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
