Carotid-anterior cerebral artery anastomosis constitutes an anomaly of the anterior part of the arterial circle of the brain. The anterior cerebral a. arises a few millimeters above the emergence of the internal carotid from the cavernous sinus, at the usual level of origin of the ophthalmic a. It travels medially, beneath the optic n., and then describes a curve with a superolateral concavity to arrive at the anterior part of the optic chiasma, where it anastomoses with the anterior… CONTINUE READING
