Letter to the editor regarding “The majority of ruptured aneurysms are small with low rupture risk scores”

Published:November 11, 2022DOI:


      • Small aneurysms compose of the majority of ruptured intracranial aneurysms.
      • Although small aneurysms are prone to rupture despite having low risk profiles, it should not be implied that they are more prone to rupture than large aneurysms.
      • Further research is needed to evaluate the factors involved in intracranial aneurysm rupture risk.
