The authors present the case report of a pediatric patient with a ruptured traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the intracranial vertebral artery (VA) from which the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) emerged. After considering multiple therapeutic options, the patient was treated surgically by trapping of the aneurysm segment and direct reimplantation of the PICA distal to the rupture site. In addition to presenting this unique case, the authors discuss the treatment of VA pseudoaneurysms and the various techniques for PICA revascularization. A review of the literature on PICA reimplantation is provided as an adjunct in the treatment of complex VA aneurysms.
