This article focuses on the treatment of persistent hypoglossal artery. Several cases of persistent primitive arteries between the carotid and the basilar artery system in man have been reported. In the human embryo there are several communicating vessels making up the primitive cerebral vascularization. A 73-year-old female was admitted to the neurosurgical department with the suspicion of an intracerebral hematoma. An acute CT-scan showed a relatively extended hematoma in the right hemisphere with protrusion to trigonum and temporal cornu. There was no displacement of the midline structures and there was no compression of the ventricle system. An arteriogram of the common carotid artery on the right side was performed with direct puncture of the common carotid artery approximately 1 cm caudal of the division-point.

    The "spot sign", first described in 2007, has shown that a focal area of contrast extravasation within an intracerebral haematoma (ICH) can be correlated with haematoma expansion. We describe a case where time-resolved dynamic CT angiography (dCTA) shows the appearance of the "spot sign" only in...

    Follow-up angiography that no longer shows a cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) after radiosurgery is thought to indicate obliteration and protection from risk of hemorrhage. However, angiographically occult vascular malformations can bleed, so one might question the degree of protection...
