BACKGROUND The incidence of concomitant carotid artery stenosis and unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA) has been reported to be between 3% and 5%. The rupture risk of UIA measuring <7 mm is very low according to International Study of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysm data. However, there may be a potential risk of aneurysm rupture after carotid artery revascularization because of increased cerebral blood flow. The aims of this study were to investigate the incidence of concomitant UIA in… CONTINUE READING
