Activity Description

Cerebral aneurysms are defined as dilations that occur at weak points along the arterial circulation within the brain. The majority of cerebral aneurysms are silent and may be found incidentally on neuroimaging or upon autopsy. Approximately 85% of aneurysms are located in the anterior circulation, predominately at junctions or bifurcations along the circle of Willis. Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) usually occurs with rupture and is associated with a high rate of morbidity and mortality. This activity highlights the role of the interprofessional team in caring for patients with a cerebral aneurysm.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the cause of cerebral aneurysms.
  • Describe the presentation of a cerebral aneurysm.
  • Summarize the treatment of cerebral aneurysms.
  • Explain the role of the interprofessional team in caring for patients with a cerebral aneurysm.
