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.
