If you or a loved one has a family history of intracranial aneurysms, it’s important to know what this means for you and other family members. In this video, Christine Buckley, Executive Director of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation talks to Dr. Alejandro Spiotta from MUSC Health about the risks associated with familial aneurysms and what can be done to help prevent them from rupturing. Brain aneurysm survivors Diann Harrell and Debra Taylor are sisters who join the conversation with their personal experiences, journey through treatment and recovery and struggles to get other family members scanned.
