BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intracranial aneurysms originating at the posterior communicating artery are known to have high rupture risk compared with other locations. We tested the hypothesis that different angioarchitectures (ie, branch point configuration) of posterior communicating artery aneurysms are associated with aneurysm hemodynamics, which in turn predisposes aneurysms to rupture. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 313 posterior communicating artery aneurysms (145 ruptured, 168 unruptured… CONTINUE READING
