Surfer34 Posted May 6, 2011 Share Posted May 6, 2011 I received different opinions from doctors about whether I needed a repeat catheter angiogram. 3 docs said no, 2 docs said yes. I had a follow up CTA 14 days after my bleed and it showed nothing. Even the doctors who said I should have a repeat catheter angiogram said the likelyhood of finding an aneurysm was 1 out of 100. I was willing to get the test done but it was such a hassle (and expensive) I decided to have an MRA as my long term follow up test. Its been 8 months since my bleed. The test was pretty easy to do, 10 minutes in the machine and it wasnt claustrophbic at all. No contrast was used. Results showed no evidence of intercranial aneurysms. My research seems to indicate new MRI machines (3t) are pretty good at small aneurysm detection. I feel a little more reassured since the test was done 8 months later which gives time for thrombosed anni's to resolve. I guess these PNASAH bleeds are just a mystery.
