At the 12 month and 7 year follow-up evaluations, death or disability was less frequent among those treated with coil embolization. However, the risk of aneurysm recurrence dictates repeated angiographies to be performed at scheduled intervals after coiling. While such issues have been thoroughly discussed in several studies, less is know about the psychosocial impact of endovascular treatment for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. To evaluate health related quality of life in patients undergoing follow-up angiography, a subset of cases was extracted from our …
