About this study

The purpose of this study is to develop an increased understanding of the role of connective tissue structural abnormalities and impaired function (i.e. wound healing) in the development of intracranial aneurysms.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
