PMID:  17124369     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 17-year-old woman presented with a rare aneurysm at the junction of the persistent primitive trigeminal artery (PPTA) and the internal carotid artery (ICA) manifesting as left abducens nerve paresis. The aneurysm and the ICA were both successfully occluded with coils. The balloon occlusion test used the HyperForm balloon microcatheter to seal the PPTA and ICA, which is very important to determine the optimal treatment strategy for a PPTA aneurysm.
