Early Rupture of a Giant Basilar Artery Aneurysm after LEO Stenting: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Summary of "Early Rupture of a Giant Basilar Artery Aneurysm after LEO Stenting: Case Report and Review of the Literature."

 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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
