Abstract

The prevalence of unruptured cerebral aneurysms (UCAs) in elderly patients is increasing in our aging population. UCA management in elderly patients has some difficulties, such as reduced life expectancy, increased comorbidities and treatment risks, and poor prognosis in case of rupture. In this review article, we summarize the most recent findings on the natural history, therapeutic options and treatment results for UCAs exclusively in elderly patients, and describe possible medical treatments for patients with UCAs.
