Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Carotid-cavernous aneurysm accounts for 2-9% of all intracranial aneurysms. The rupture of carotid-cavernous aneurysm is usually caused by a trauma. Nevertheless, spontaneous rupture may rarely be encountered. Here, we report a term pregnant woman who was diagnosed to have a spontaneous carotid-cavernous fistula due to carotid-cavernous aneurysm rupture and was managed with detachable balloon and coils immediately after cesarean section.
