Abstract

Descrevemos nossa experiência no tratamento microcirúrgico de 34 pacientes portadores de aneurismas não rotos da artéria cerebral média. Houve prevalência no sexo masculino. Oitenta e três por cento dos aneurismas apresentava tamanho menor que 10 mm. Não houve óbito na presente série, com morbidade de 3% após 1 ano. Indicamos, portanto, microcirurgia como tratamento de escolha para os aneurismas não rotos da artéria cerebral média.Thirty four surgical cases of unruptured middle cerebral artery aneurysms are presented. There was a male prevalence. 83% of aneurysms was small (< 10 mm). There was a low morbidity related to the surgical treatment. We advise the surgical treatment of unruptured middle cerebral artery aneurysms as first choice to patients with this condition
