Anterior communicating artery aneurysm surgery


Anterior communicating artery aneurysm surgery approaches.

Patients with very small ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysms can be safely and effectively treated with endovascular coiling. However, smaller ACoA aneurysms still require surgical clipping. A smaller aneurysm size limits the use of endovascular coiling 1).

They need more brain retraction or their neck is usually associated intimately with the hypothalamic or infundibular perforators and frequently, one or both A2 segments densely adherent to the body of the aneurysm 2) 3) 4) 5).
