Surgical treatment of posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) aneurysms is challenging due to limited surgical accessibility. Endovascular approach has a benefit of avoiding direct injury to the brainstem or lower cranial nerves. Therefore, it has recently been considered an alternative or primary modality for PICA aneurysms. We retrospectively assessed outcomes ...

Intracranial aneurysms are sometimes presented with visual symptoms by their rupture or direct compression of the optic nerve. It is because their prevalent sites are anatomically located close to the optic pathway. Anterior communicating artery is especially located in close proximity to optic nerve. Aneurysm arising in this area can ...

OBJECTIVE: No existing in vivo technique can measure aneurysm wall thickness for evaluation of rupture risk. Intracranial aneurysms produce bruits at a special range of frequency that are highly influenced by the wall thickness. Understanding of the mechanism that generates bruits may allow us to learn aneurysm behavior non-invasively. METHODS: ...
