momo Posted April 6, 2011 Share Posted April 6, 2011 My Spontaneous Dissecting Aneurysm I have recently found out that the type of aneurysm I had that ruptured was a Spontaneous Dissecting Aneurysm. So not only (as we all know on here) is it so very rare to have a ruptured aneurysm at all but the type of aneurysm I had was a very rare sub type. My neuro-consultant has only ever seen 3 of these. Basically it formed then ruptured spontaneously. I hadn't been walking around with it, it was nothing to do with a bump on the head three weeks previously it just formed, then ruptured in an instant. Having thought about this and what my consultant has said I now feel that not many people have survived this particular type of aneurysmal rupture, I have no eveidence to support this just this feeling I have. Mine was successfully coiled and I have now been told it is completely occluded. I do have two infundebella, not sure of the spelling here! They are stable entities, not aneurysms. I will be having another scan in five years although my consultant expects to see no change with these. Happy with this. So is there anybody out there who has had a Spantaneous Dissecting Aneurysm and just out of interest what were you doing at the time?
