Advances in the endovascular armamentarium, such as flow diversion and stenting devices, provide treatment options for posterior circulation intracranial aneurysms (IAs) with complex angioarchitecture. Delayed IA rupture following flow diversion is a rare but often fatal complication. Giant IAs likely pose a higher risk because of the extensive clot formation and its suspected detrimental effect on the aneurysmal wall. However, mechanisms that lead to delayed rupture are poorly understood, and few cases provide thorough documentation of macroscopic and histologic findings.

We present the case of a concurrent rupture of a middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysm and thrombosis of the associated vessel.
Idiopathic rupture of aortic valve commissure is an extremely rare cause of acute aortic regurgitation. Here, we reported one case of commissural rupture in the presence of a giant root aneurysm and a...
Visceral artery aneurysms are a rare but dangerous vascular pathology. The branches of the coeliac trunc are most frequently affected, especially the splenic artery. A visceral aneurysm is usually dia...
In this video, we present the case of a 61-year-old female who was brought to the emergency room after she had partial complex seizures. CT and MRI of the brain revealed a right temporal lobe mass whi...
Sub arachnoid hemorrhage consecutive to intracranial aneurysm rupture is a devastating disease. Predictors of intracranial aneurysm rupture are limited and focus mainly on size and locatio...
The aim of the research was to evaluate independent risk factors for the presence of middle cerebral artery aneurysm. Hemodynamic factors play the most important role in rupture aneurysm a...
This is the first prospective study in Hong Kong that recruit patients with poor neurological status after intracranial aneurysm rupture in all seven public neurosurgical services in Hong ...
Posterior circulation stroke accounts for 20% of ischemic stroke. A quarter occurs in patients with stenosis in the vertebral and/or basilar arteries. Vertebral artery stenosis can be trea...
Comparison of two methods for revascularization of the superficial femoral artery: stenting of the superficial femoral artery vs. stenting of the superficial femoral artery supplemented wi...
The tearing or bursting of the wall along any portion of the AORTA, such as thoracic or abdominal. It may result from the rupture of an aneurysm or it may be due to TRAUMA.
Postoperative hemorrhage from an endovascular AORTIC ANEURYSM repaired with endoluminal placement of stent grafts (BLOOD VESSEL PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION). It is associated with pressurization, expansion, and eventual rupture of the aneurysm.
Artery formed by the bifurcation of the BASILAR ARTERY. Branches of the posterior cerebral artery supply portions of the OCCIPITAL LOBE; PARIETAL LOBE; inferior temporal gyrus, brainstem, and CHOROID PLEXUS.
Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.
Abnormal outpouching in the wall of intracranial blood vessels. Most common are the saccular (berry) aneurysms located at branch points in CIRCLE OF WILLIS at the base of the brain. Vessel rupture results in SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE or INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES. Giant aneurysms (>2.5 cm in diameter) may compress adjacent structures, including the OCULOMOTOR NERVE.
