Double-barrel STA to proximal MCA bypass and proximal parent artery occlusion for a fusiform superior clinoidal ICA aneurysm

Acta Neurochirurgica (2018) 160:1939–1943

Blood flow replacement and parent artery occlusion are alternative treatments of complex fusiform superior clinoidal ICA aneurysms. While double-barrel STA to proximal MCA bypass is a conventional approach among these reported bypass algorithms, its technical details remain underexplored.

Method We have applied the double-barrel STA to proximal MCA bypass and parent artery occlusion to treat a 45-year-old female patient with a right fusiform superior clinoidal ICA aneurysm. The technical nuances of this approach are reported.

Conclusion We show that double-barrel STA to proximal MCA bypass and proximal parent artery occlusion can be alternative treatments of complex fusiform superior clinoidal ICA aneurysms.
