Leo Posted May 20, 2009 Share Posted May 20, 2009 Hi, Last week I had my first angiogram because my neurosurgeon and the neuro radiologist at my local hospital apparently disagreed about whether I had a second or third unruptured aneurysm. The angio whislt unpleasant went OK and didn't hurt but I am left totally confused by the differing diagnosis I was given by the surgical team and radiologist. They both agreed that I have two infundibulum blood vessels in my brain (abnormal v shaped vessels) but gave very different explanations (at different times, both when I was alone). Neuroradiologist: nothing to worry about, they won't grow or change Neurosurgical registrar: They can grow into aneurysms and rupture, therefore they have to be watched and monitored as if are already annis. As you can imagine, I went from elation to confusion in the space of a few hours. I have looked them up on the internet but I just can't digest all that guff right now. Does anyone else have an infundibulum out there? And if so, what did your surgeon say about it? In confusion, Leo xx Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
