Case conclusion.Thanks for the answeres. The answer is D. Old Age. Older age is a risk factor for complications of surgical clipping of an unruptured aneurysm.Akthough one yr mortality is similar for Endovascular treatment and surgical clipping, elderly patients undergoing surgical clipping are less likely to be discharged home

C. MCA aneurysm, due to its proximity to ophthalmic/ anterior choroidal artery which can be damaged by clipping.

D. Old age individual
