Surgical clipping

This surgery involves placing a small metal clip around the base of the aneurysm to isolate it from normal blood circulation. This decreases the pressure on the aneurysm and prevents it from rupturing. Whether this surgery can be done depends on the location of the aneurysm, its size, and your general health.

Thrombolytic or 'clot busting' drugs

Thrombolytic or "clot-busting" drugs offer an emergency treatment option for some people who are having a stroke. These medications, which include an agent called a tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), halt the stroke by dissolving the blood clot that is blocking blood flow to the brain.
