What is Aneurysmal Clipping ?
An aneurysm is a bulge in the artery caused by a weak/damaged atrial wall. An aneurismal clipping is an open surgical intervention procedure where a clip made of titanium or a surgically non-toxic metal is placed at the neck of this aneurysm to prevent further damage to vital structures. This process is generally done by a neurosurgeon for brain aneurysms. The clip acts as a barrier between the blood vessel and the aneurysm, halting the growth of it. The clipping procedure depends on the size, geometry, favorability, accessibility and the anatomy of the aneurysm.
