Aneurysm rupture is the determining clinical situation from the point of view of public health and particular case since it has a high morbidity and mortality rate depending on the degree of subarachnoid hemorrhage present. There are studies that indicate different aspects that are related to the likelihood of aneurysm rupture, being the size the characteristic that varies the most because there are reports of increased risk when aneurysms are large or giant but there are also studies that report that smaller ones are those with higher risk. The data show that aneurysms that ruptured are slightly smaller in size than those that did not rupture, since the difference is not statistically significant, with our data we can support the idea that rupture depends mostly on the shape of the aneurysm neck, the proximity to a bifurcation, the morphological characteristics of the sac and the pathophysiological conditions of the patient. It is noteworthy that a statistically significant difference was found in the size of internal carotid artery aneurysms in women compared to men. The data have the potential to continue to evaluate size differences by location and perform different types of correlations or analyses related to the surgical management performed on the patient.


Steps to reproduce

The data were obtained from the records in the medical records of the radiology report of the MRI taken from the patient. The information obtained was recorded in an excel form and the analysis was performed with SPSS software version 28. One of the authors was dedicated to the process of reviewing the medical records and reports, each case reviewed was immediately recorded in the form and reviewed to ensure accuracy. Once the collection was completed, a review process was performed on a random sample of 100 cases without finding flaws or errors in the registry.
