In a follow-up study of patients who underwent intracranial surgery for cerebral artery aneurysms, the rate of adverse events (combination of morbidity and mortality) was 28% - significantly lower than in our previously published study. In an analysis of the relative importance of prognostic factors, the occurrence of an adverse event was associated with a poor neurologic grade (P < 0.08), an age of 50 years or older factors, race itself is not associated with an adverse event in intracranial surgery for cerebral aneurysms.
