Abstract: The present findings suggest that ruptured intracranial aneurysms are smaller in Asians and should be confirmed in future prospective international multi-centre registries to assess ethnicity. Whether these findings support treating smaller unruptured intracranial aneurysms in Asians should be investigated.

“…18 This is comparable to the data cited in the literature, in which the incidence of aSAH has been estimated to be approximately 7.8 (95% CI 7.2-8.4) per 100,000 person-years in most populations. 9,12,13 With the discrepancy in prevalence of UIAs, yet a similar incidence of aSAH, one probable explanation is that UIAs in Hong Kong Chinese ruptured at a smaller size.…”

“…9 However, small aneurysms are known to rupture, and some recent studies have reported that up to a third of ruptured intracranial aneurysms measure Ͻ5 mm. 9,11 An increasing number of treating physicians favor preventive treatment of even tiny aneurysms. 12,13 The American Heart Association/American Stroke Associa-tion (AHA/ASA) guidelines for management of patients with UIAs were updated in 2015.…”
