Twenty patients with extracranial carotid stenosis and intracranial aneurysms are reviewed. Fifteen of these patients had transient ischemic attacks (TIA's) and incidental aneurysms. The other five presented with symptoms referrable to an aneurysm, and angiography revealed significant carotid stenosis. None of the patients who presented with TIA's and underwent endarterectomy suffered subarachnoid hemorrhage. However, those patients who presented with symptoms referrable to an aneurysm and underwent endarterectomy seem to be at greater risk for subarachnoid hemorrhage.
