A rare case of giant cell arteritis inducing an aneurysmal dilatation in the peripheral branch of the middle cerebral artery was presented. The lesion was solitary and no extra- cerebral vasculature was involved. The literature of giant cell arteritis and of similar disorders involving the intracranial arteries was reviewed.

    Oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor 1 (LOX1) is a critical factor for atherosclerosis in a variety of vascular diseases; however, its major role in cerebral arterial dissecting aneurysm is unclear. We present a case of remarkable contrast of LOX1 expression in ruptured and unruptured...

    Objectives: The aim was toanalyze the risk factors for intraoperative rupture (IR) of cerebral aneurysm and for temporary clips (TC) use, as well as their influence on the final postoperative outcome. Methods: Retrospective study was done 72 IR patients, and on 75 TC patients. For patients with...

    We are recording the first reported case of a 20-year-old man with an intracerebral haemorrhage due to a ruptured aneurysm, which arose from a penetrating artery of the distal middle cerebral artery (MCA; M4 segment). Excision of the aneurysm was successfully achieved via a right pterional...

    Endovascular treatment of aneurysms of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) avoids manipulation of the brainstem or lower cranial nerves and should therefore carry a lower risk of neurological morbidity than surgical clipping. We reviewed our experience of 23 patients with PICA...

    Background: Superficial temporal artery-to-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis is a common procedure for neurosurgeons. The surgery necessarily requires accurate and speedy manipulation of microscope, for which a specific training is needed. Unexpected bypass occlusion sometimes happen...
