Growth is important in intracranial aneurysms because it increases the risk of aneurysm rupture. Detailed findings are found in the article, “Aspirin associated with decreased rate of intracranial aneurysm growth,” by Mario Zanaty, M.D., and colleagues, published today in the Journal of Neurosurgery.
