The anatomical variations of internal carotid artery (ICA) are mostly asymptomatic, thus being disregarded and only incidentally diagnosed, with very few symptomatic patients. The awareness of these anomalies is crucial to solve the differential with other neck lesions, preventing accidental injuries during neck surgery. Therefore, the aim of our study is to estimate the prevalence of ICA anomalies, using magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and computed tomography angiography (CTA). 253… CONTINUE READING
