Basilar artery aneurysm classification

Basilar artery aneurysms can be graded according to their diameter into small, (<12 mm), large (12–25 mm), and giant (>25 mm) 1) 2).

Distal basilar artery aneurysms (DBAs) consist of Basilar apex aneurysm and basilar artery-superior cerebellar artery bifurcation (BA-SCA) aneurysms, see Basilar bifurcation aneurysm.

see Basilar trunk aneurysm

see Low Basilar trunk aneurysm

Basilar aneurysms can be graded according to their diameter into small, (<12 mm), large (12–25 mm), and giant (>25 mm)

see Giant basilar artery aneurysm.
