Case Study
Giant vertebrobasilar aneurysms constitute a relatively uncommon subgroup of aneurysms with a high mortality rate. These aneurysms are often difficult to treat with conventional clipping or coiling because of their location and their morphology. Here we describe two patients with giant vertebrobasilar aneurysms, both of which were successfully treated with bilateral vertebral artery occlusion. This approach is suggested as a definitive treatment for vertebrobasilar aneurysms in appropriate circumstances.

    We describe a case of subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured right vertebral artery (VA) aneurysm where endovascular therapy via a trans-femoral route was not feasible. Therefore we surgically exposed the VA and directly punctured it at the C4 level, followed by successful coil embolization....

    Background: The artery of Percheron (AOP) is a single thalamoperforating arterial trunk that provides bilateral supply to the paramedian thalami and the rostral midbrain. As this rare anatomical variant artery may be involved in endovascular procedures or encountered surgically during basilar...

    Vertebral artery origin anomalies are typically incidental findings during angiography or post mortem examination. We present two cases of vertebral origin from the right common carotid artery in association with an aberrant right subclavian artery. We also review the embryonic development and...

    Stability of the atlantooccipital joint is of vital importance. The ligaments of this region, for the most part, have been thoroughly investigated, except for the lateral atlantooccipital ligament (LAO), which is not described in most modern texts. The authors examined 20 adult cadaveric...
