During my ct scan 3 months ago they found two small (2mm) aneurysms:
2 X 2 mm superiorly projected anterior communicating artery aneurysm
2 mm inferiorly projected LEFT posterior communicating artery aneurysm
I saw the neurosurgeon a couple days ago. It was a brief visit and he said he could do surgery and my aneurysms were in a good place for it. I came away thinking he meant coiling, which seems to be a pretty good remedy. They go in through the groin and almost no recovery time. A no brainer (pun intended!). So I was feeling pretty good.
Today I called to double check about insurance and I found out that this Dr does CLIPPING and was talking about CLIPPING. Not coiling!
Am I even a good candidate for coiling? Does the 2 X 2 mm mean wide neck, which means coiling is out?
Clipping looks like a very big deal!!
