- •Unruptured intracranial aneurysms are increasingly treated endovascularly, becoming the most common modality since 2004.
- •In the past 15 years, Open surgical clipping has decreased over time for unruptured aneurysms.
- •Patients who were treated for unruptured aneurysms had a higher number of pre-existing comorbidities.
- •Racial and socioeconomic disparities present in UIA management, with more private insurer patients undergoing craniotomy compared to endovascular cases.
