Résumé

Background. Based on earlier studies, we aimed to determine the quality of life of patients with intracranial aneurysm after their treatment by surgery or embolization and to compare the quality of life of these two groups.Methods. The SF-36 health questionnaire was retrospectively applied to 93 patients with intracranial aneurysm treated with surgery (n=56) or embolization (n=37).Results. The quality of life of some patients was impaired but 50% of patients treated with surgery and 40,5% of patients treated with embolization showed no impairment in any SF-36 domain. The quality of life in the Physical Functioning domain was higher in embolization-treated than in surgery-treated patients.Conclusions. Some patients with intracranial aneurysms treated with surgery or endovascular embolization have an impaired quality of life. Endovascular treatment may cause less limitation in physical function. The quality of life of these patients is affected by numerous factors, in addition to the type of treatment.
