Object. Brain check-up is very important for detecting the incidence and prevalence of aneurysms in the population and to get the definite strategy for the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. Methods. This is a retrospective study of 116 aneurysms detected by brain check-up between 1998-1999 which were treated either by clipping or endovascular coiling. In some cases the aneurysmal wall was resected for histopathological examination and compared with five normal autopsy cases. Conclusions. Direct surgery is the primary option for a patient with an aneurysm in the anterior circulation especially in young patients. Intravascular therapy is suitable for aneurysms in the posterior circulation and in intracavernous site.
