Segmental non-fusion of the basilar artery results from failed fusion of the neural arteries and from regression of the bridging arteries that connect the longitudinal arteries. This condition is associated with aneurysm formation in 7% of cases. Distally unfused arteries with associated aneurysms are very rare. We report on a case of successful endovascular treatment of an aneurysm of the distally unfused basilar trunk.

    Endovascular treatment of complex intracranial lesions often requires use of two different microcatheters or micro-guidewires. A basilar artery aneurysm was treated with microstent-assisted coiling. During the procedure a microwire severed and the distal platinum portion of the wire was left...

    We propose the combined neurosurgical-endovascular treatment with the balloon occlusion of parent artery during surgery of giant paraclinoid and vertebrobasilar aneurysms, which are unsuitable for a pure endovascular or surgical approach. Between January 2003 and December 2007, we treated...

    The femoral approach has been considered the preferred technique for the endovascular treatment of intracranial aneurysms. Occasionally, aneurysms are not amenable to the standard femoral approach. We describe four cases of basilar artery aneurysm that were treated by the direct vertebral artery...

    We have reviewed initial diagnostic features, treatment, and outcome in 29 patients with acute subarachnoid hemorrhage due to non-traumatic vertebrobasilar artery dissection diagnosed in our hospital between 1993 and 2003. The dissections occurred in the vertebral artery in 19 patients, the...

    Endovascular treatment of ruptured vertebrobasilar artery aneurysms with Gugliemi detachable coils (GDC) has become an alternative to surgery. Mid-term angiographic follow-up can now be reported. Of 111 vertebrobasilar aneurysms in 110 patients we treated with GDC since 1992, 53 underwent...

    The purpose of this retrospective study was to report the morphological characteristics and results of surgical and endovascular treatment of basilar artery (BA) trunk saccular aneurysms. Twenty-two patients with 22 BA trunk saccular aneurysms underwent surgery including endovascular...
