Anurism on the base of the brain when cannot be operated?

In brief: Challenging

Not all aneurysms should be operated upon, as the small ones are very unlikely to rupture, yet if larger than 9mm, likely should be fixed.
Some pts possess co-morbidities increasing anesthesia and surgery risk. Would have a conference with a neurosurgeon and get all of this situated.

In brief: Most are reparable

Depending on exact size and location, most are correctable with surgery or interventions.
