  1. 1. Unruptured Familial Intracranial Aneurysms: Are these at greater risk of rupture? Macquarie Neurosurgery Evidence Based Surgery presentation Date:23rd February 2012 Leon Lai EBS presentation 1
  2. 2. Clinical case34F; incidental paraclinoid aneurysm (5mm) Non-smoker; No Hypertension Brother died of ruptured aneurysm Is this aneurysm at greater risk of rupture compared to sporadic one? (Treat or not treat?)

  10. 10. Risk of rupture compared to non-FIA cases?
  11. 11. FIAs: Other featuresMultiple aneurysms more commonDe novo aneurysms more commonRupture tend to occur within same decade of life as that ofsiblingCompared to sporadic aneurysms, Rupture tends to be 5 years earlier Rupture is at a smaller size (1-2mm)
  12. 12. Prospective FIA Series
  13. 13. (Stroke. 2009;40:1952-1957) Prospective, 26 clinical centres in North America, Australia, NZ. 2 or more affected family members Smoker or Hypertension or both 17x increased risk of rupture (ISUIA 0.069%) 2 ruptures 1.2% per year(96% aneurysms<7mm)
  14. 14. FIA study: Ruptured IAs during prospective follow up
  15. 15. ISUIA Data“Family history of SAH does not increase the risk of rupture in this group”
  16. 16. SUAVA Data(Prospective, 2000 to 2004; 12 clinical centres in Japan, aneurysms<5mm)
  17. 17. Conclusion34F; incidental paraclinoid aneurysm (5mm) Non-smoker; No Hypertension Brother died of ruptured aneurysm Is this aneurysm at greater risk of rupture compared to sporadic one?Retrospective data: 2 to 5x increased risk of rupture; rupture is 5 years earlier and at a smaller size (1-2mm) Prospective data (1 study) –17x increased risk of rupture
  18. 18. Conclusion X = risk of rupture/year; Y = life expectancy (years)ISUIA: X=0.069%; Y=40  Risk = 2.72% over next 40 yearsSUAVE: X=0.34%; Y=40  Risk = 12.74% over next 40 years FIA Study: X=1.2%; Y=40 Risk = 38.30% over next 40 years TREAT!
