Growth of a giant aneurysm following complete thrombosis by detachable balloon occlusion.

PMID:  1440218     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A giant basilar artery aneurysm demonstrating growth and causing neurological deterioration even after complete detachable balloon occlusion is reported. Autopsy revealed total thrombosis of the aneurysm and a hemiconcentric, onion skin-like, laminated structure. Numerous vascular channels and multiple fresh intramural hemorrhages were noted within the outer margin of the aneurysmal wall. Repeated intramural hemorrhages appeared to have been responsible for the aneurysmal laminated structure and contributed to progressive aneurysmal growth. This case demonstrates that the growth of some giant aneurysms is not dependent upon the continuity with the parent artery, and progressive enlargement cannot always be prevented by balloon occlusion.
