The article reports that the disability and loss of life resulting from stroke continue to be significant. It has been estimated that thromboembolic cerebral infarcts will cause about 80 percent of strokes. Most emboli arise from the heart or extracranial carotid artery and lodge predominatly in the area of the middle cerebral artery. Treatment of cerebrovascular accident is both challenging and controversial. Medical treatment is largely preventive and supportive, and until recently, operative treatment was not adequately developed. Advances in microsurgical techniques, however, have generated interest in intracranial reconstructive vascular surgery.

    Background: Posterior communicating artery (PCoA) aneurysms are most commonly located at the junction of the internal carotid artery and the PCoA. ''True'' PCoA aneurysms, which originate from the PCoA itself, are rarely encountered. Most previously reported cases were treated surgically mainly...
