I understand that MRI is much better at finding vulnerabilities to aneurysms than angiograms. I think hospitals often go to the angiogram first, but the MRI is more detailed and also less risky.
A friend recently had a hemmoragic stroke, and one thing that came up in talking with the docs was that now many people take daily low dose aspirin, so while that is reducing heart attacks, people are having strokes that bleed instead. I don't know if that applies at all to your friend, but wish her the best.

roman, I thought about this more, and I thought maybe foods that will help strengthen the blood vessel walls. Strengthening the walls might help, in addition to checking for risky areas on an MRI.
The first thing that came to mind was rutin, buckwheat is an excellent source, as well as other things, here's a link, and there are other "bioflavinoids" mentioned that will help too. I also think vitamin C is good, but many of the foods on these lists are also good for that.
this link says buckwheat and vitamin C proven to strengthen capillary walls (look at the section on hemmerhoids LOL) http://biology.clc.uc.edu/courses/bio105/circulat.htm
here's another link
LOL I'm going to go soak some buckwheat after reading this!
All the best to you and your friend.
If she needs an easy way to get some of these down, I sometimes make a porridge out of soaked buckwheat (you don't need to sprout buckwheat according to Gabriel Cousens MD, it's ok to just soak it), and apple. Just put the soaked buckwheat and cored apple with the skin still on for more of these compounds, in the food processor. You can season with lemon juice or cinnamon or whatever.
If she feels like "cooking" there's lots that can be done with buckwheat, including granolas and cereals and crackers, cookies, pizza crusts, tortilla chips, etc., to make it easy to eat it daily.

THANK YOU EXURB
very nice of you to put the time into this post !
and this info helps because the game plan is to
stock her up on natural products to help heal
after surgery , plus prevent any future occurences .
also on this topic i read of OPC , which is extracted
from either grape seeds or pine bark . and has been
proven to strengthen blood vessels .
