Ruptured Cerebral Aneurysm
A ruptured cerebral aneurysm is a ballooning of an artery around the brain that bleeds and causes severe headache, nausea, vomiting and occasional coma or even death.
Hydrocephalus means water on the brain. There are ventricles within the brain cavity that can enlarge from various conditions. This can lead to a build up on the fluid within these chambers. This is often treated with a shunt procedure.
A subdural hematoma is a new or old blood clot on the surface of the brain. For a new blood clot a craniotomy is performed. For an old or chronic subdural hematoma burr holes can be performed.
