Object Microsurgical clipping is a widely used surgical technique in intracranial aneurysm treatment. It can be difficult in large sized aneurysms, and those with wide necks, thick walls and calcification located in the vicinity of the neck. This study reviewed calcification of the intracranial aneurysm wall and its relation to patient age, gender, location and size of the aneurysm. A possible cut-off value after which the aneurysm calcification rate increases was also investigated to classify patients' risk factors for microclipping.
