Interventional radiology is a sub-speciality in medicine where trained physicians can treat several diseases by taking fine tubes or catheters under image guidance through tubular structures in the body especially the blood vessels to treat several variety of diseases it could mean of blocking an abnormal cluster of vessels or opening a blocked vessel.
The brain is covered by a thin layer of fluid which lies within the subarachnoid space. When blood leaks into this space the patient suffers headache of an intensity which can only be described as thunderclap. The commonest cause of subarachnoid hemorrhage is a ruptured intracranial aneurysm. This is a dangerous condition , left untreated the aneurysm can rupture again which can be fatal..
Aneurysms are abnormal bulges in a blood vessel. These bulges develop because the vessel in this area is weak. Aneurysms are prone to rupture. When they rupture they produce the condition called subarachnoid hemorrhage [SAH]. An aneurysm in the brain which is more than 5 mm has to be treated. Any aneurysm that has ruptured also requires immediate treatment. Aneurysms can also develop in any major blood vessels of the body and when diagnosed require treatment which would depend upon the size and location.
