Case Study
Aneurysms in children are rare. We describe a large spontaneous dissecting aneurysm of the posterior cerebral artery. The clinical presentation was characterized by headache as the sole symptom due to a mass effect leading to hydrocephalus. Acute treatment with a temporary ventricular shunt was followed by occlusion of the aneurysm via an endovascular approach leading to a complete recovery of the patient.

    Objective: This study presents the experience of one neurosurgical center in the treatment of 18 consecutive patients with distal anterior cerebral artery (DACA) aneurysms during a 10 years period. Our aim was to compare treatment outcomes of these lesions with intracranial aneurysms in general,...

    Background and purpose: Previously, we showed that co-prevalence of extracranial carotid artery aneurysms (ECAAs) in patients with intracranial aneurysms (IAs) was 2% in a Dutch cohort. In order to obtain more precise estimates and discover potential predictors of ECAA co-prevalence in the...

    Superior cerebellar artery (SCA) aneurysms sometimes involve the origin of the SCA making treatment difficult. We focused on the morphological characteristics of SCA aneurysms and adjacent vascular structures to apply clinical decision-making for the treatment strategy. Sixty-nine SCA aneurysms,...

    Although endovascular coiling treatment has been widely accepted as the method of choice for intracranial aneurysms, concerns about its durability are still discussed. Attention was largely focused on aneurysm recurrence after coil occlusion with possible unfavourable evolution to a new bleeding...

    OBJECTIVES A 34 years-old previously healthy man was brought to the E.R. with altered consciousness. On admission he was comatose, intubated at the scene where GCS was 8 points (M4O2V2) and stable vital signs. Earlier that day he had experienced severe headache and vomiting, followed shortly by...

    Variations of the anterior cerebral artery-anterior communicating artery complex are commonly identified in aneurysm surgery. An infraoptic course of the anterior cerebral artery is exceedingly rare. Robison first described this anomaly from an anatomic dissection in 1959. A unilateral anomalous...

    Background/Aims: To better understand potential risks for vertebral artery (VA) dissection (VAD), we compared intracranial and extracranial VADs. Methods: We analyzed consecutively admitted VAD patients over a 9-year period in whom VAD was confirmed by angiography. All patients were categorized...
