The purpose of this study was to comprehensively explore factors affecting quality of life in patients with unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA). M ethods: This study was conducted base on the National Evidence-based Healthcare Collaborating Agency (NECA) and Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analy-sis (PRISMA). To search studies related to quality of life in patients with UIA. KoreaMed, Kmbase, Kiss, Pubmed, EMBASE, Cochrane Central and CINAHL were used. Key words were 'unruptured intracranial aneurysm', 'quality of life' and 'well-being'. A total of 136 studies were identified. After confirming duplication and abstracts, 15 studies were selected for analysis. Results: As a result, factors affecting the quality of life in patients with UIA were categorized into individual factors, disease related factors, symptom related factors, and functional related factors. The Short form-36 was one of the most frequently used measurements. Conclusion: To improve the quality of life of patients with UIA, researchers need to explore the multiple factors affecting quality of life in patients with UIA, and consider application of tools that can reflect the disease specific quality of life in patients with UIA.
