Abstract

Very few studies have examined the neuropsychological differences between the two types of aneurysm treatment, and these studies come from different countries. The purpose of this study is to compare the neuropsychological differences between surgical treatment and endovascular treatment in a Spanish sample of patients who have experienced an aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. The sample is composed of three groups: 40 patients who underwent surgical intervention, 24 who were treated by means of coiling, and a group of 29 healthy participants. An extensive neuropsychological evaluation was performed. The results presented show that no neuropsychological differences were found between the two types of treatment for aneurysms and that the most affected function was memory. This result coincides with findings from other studies.
