Introduction: To analyze the results of surgical intervention for paraclinoid aneurysm of the past 14 years. Methods: Between 2004 Jan. and 2018 May, we have treated 68 patients (7 males, mean age at surgery: 55.8 years, range: 30~83 years) who underwent surgical interventions for unruptured paraclinoid aneurysm. Their location numbers are as follow: dosal wall 21,medial wall 34, lateral wall 2 and ventral wall 11. Aneurysm location, size and postoperative results were investigated. Outcomes were assessed on the basis of a modified Rankin Scale (mRS). Results: The overall rate of mRS 0 was 63 cases (92.6%), mRS 1 was 2 cases (2.9%) with partial visual disturbance, mRS 2 was 2 cases (2.9%) with one blindness, one with rt.hemiweakness due to thromboembolism and mRS 4 was one (1.5%) with lt.hemiparesis due to medical comorbidity. Conclusion: The direct clipping method utilizing advanced techniques is the preferred approach and continues to be a good option for the treatment of paraclinoid aneurysms. Careful surgical consideration is necessary for elderly and mdical risk patients.
