This article focuses on the problem of the intracranial aneurysm. It is estimated that the incidence of intracranial aneurysm in the general population is about 0.5 to 1.0 per cent. The location of aneurysms is a matter of somewhat greater importance than the age of onset. There are three types of intracranial aneurysms; mycotic, arteriosclerotic and congenital. It is questionable as to whether a syphilitic group exists. Aneurysms of the internal carotid artery have often been found associated with other congenital anomalies.

    In a series of 49 intracranial aneurysms treated by carotid ligation, complications (including enlargement of the aneurysmal sac and recurrent hemorrhage) occurred in 16 per cent; death, in 18 per cent. Current concepts regarding the treatment of these lesions are briefly reviewed.

    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...

    Arteriosclerotic lesions in the carotid arteries are the main cause of ischemic cerebral infarction. Only a few studies of the incidence of carotid lesions in patients with chronic peripheral arterial disease (CPAD) and myocardial infarction (MI) have been made. Thus the aim of this study was to...

    The article presents a long-term follow-up study of intracranial aneurysms treated by cervical carotid artery ligation. The study examined whether carotid ligation offers worthwhile protection against recurrent hemorrhage. A number of researchers have contended that if a common carotid artery is...

    We report the efficacy and safety of endovascular treatment of basilar tip aneurysms (BTA) in five patients with moyamoya disease. The patients underwent intra-aneurysmal embolisation with detachable platinum coils. Three BTA presented with subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH); the other two were...

    Endoluminal reconstruction with flow diverter devices represents an innovative technique in the treatment of intracranial aneurysms. These new stents, self-expandable and of low porosity, are released through the microcatherization of the parent artery. The main goal of these systems is thereby...

    Severe carotid artery stenosis or occlusion may put patients at risk for ischaemic stroke. Reduced cerebrovascular reserve capacity is a possible indicator of an imminent ischaemic event and can be determined by assessment of cerebrovascular reactivity to a vasodilative stimulus. However, little...
