Cerebral aneurysm in PKD

Cerebral aneurysm is the most serious complication of PKD.It refers to a bulging blood vessel due to weakening of the blood vessels.In serious case,aneurysm can rupture,causing bleeding into the brain.If not treated aggressively before the aneurysm ruptures,it can lead to irreversible brain damage and even death.

Early detection of cerebral aneurysm is recommended to people who are at high-risk.Screening is generally performed with magnetic response angiography (MRA) or if not available, a CT scan.

High blood pressure is a significant risk factor of cerebral aneurysm in PKD.It can bulge the cyst further,thus increasing the risk of rupturing.So it is important for the patients to keep blood pressure under control.In PKD,the underlying cause of high blood pressure is enlarged cysts.In addition,cerebral aneurysm is a complication of PKD.Therefore,to control the condition fundamentally, the patients should have a treatment to PKD.

Micro-Chinese Medicines Osmotherapy is a recommended treatment to PKD.It is a plant-based therapy in which various kinds of Chinese medicines are applied based on the patients specific illness condition.The effective medicines ingredients can kill the lining cells on cysts wall to stop the cysts from enlarging.In addition,the therapy can increase the removal of cystic fluid by improving the permeability of cyst wall.Once PKD is controlled,the associated complications will be treated fundamentally including cerebral aneurysm.
