Hello and thanks for your response.


Hopefully other members will give input to your post from their own experiences..


A follow up scan is likely to be carried out within the first year of coiling when the instance of a change in the size of the aneurysm neck may become apparent and a decision made on whether further treatment is necessary. Further scans to monitor will be considered by the consultant.

The extra growth is also termed a "remnant' although the occurrence on coiled aneurysms is small.


The clipped aneurysm remnant often occurred when essential checks during the clipping procedure may not have been carried out.


What was the decision on your own scan?


I should also add that the 'neck' relates to where the blood vessel weakened and resulted in the aneurysm forming.
