The article focuses on a 47 year old woman, who was admitted to Booth Memorial Medical Center with sudden onset of severe headache, vomiting, drowsiness and right sided seizures. Bilateral carotid angiography confirmed the presence of a mid-line cerebral arterio-venous malformation, filling mainly from the right carotid artery. The patient was allowed to recover from her episode of subarachnoid hemorrhage, and after appropriate convalescence she was brought back to hospital for surgery. Under general endotracheal anesthesia the carotid bifurcation was exposed through an oblique incision along the anterior border of sternomastoid, extending from just below the mastoid process to the level of the cricoid cartilage.

    Non-saccular aneurysms (NSAs) of the internal carotid artery trunk include blood blister-like aneurysms (BBAs) and dissecting aneurysms (DAs), which are susceptible to disastrous intra- and postoperative bleeding. This study was conducted to clarify the clinical features of NSAs and the results...

    Reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome (RCVS) is characterized by acute severe headache with or without additional neurological symptoms and reversible cerebral vasoconstriction. Unruptured aneurysms have been reported in some cases with RCVS. We describe a severe case of a 50-year-old...
