Objective Mirror aneurysms are generally considered as a subset of multiple aneurysms, defined as aneurysms occurring bilaterally and symmetrically on the same-named vessels. Although not infrequent, the characteristics of mirror aneurysms are not well studied. This investigation was conducted to elucidate the anatomic features of such lesions and examine treatment options. Materials and Methods A retrospective review was conducted, aimed at 172 patients treated for 344 mirror aneurysms between… 

Multiple and mirror intracranial aneurysms: study of prevalence and associated risk factors

Gender and smoking, known risk factors to the development of a single intracranial aneurysm, are proportionally increased in patients with MIA, and Hypertension and oral contraceptives were not associated with multiplicity.

Older Age and Single-Stage Clipping of Multiple Intracranial Unruptured Aneurysm Predict Worse One-Year Clinical Outcome

It is concluded that older age and single-stage clipping of multiple (≥4 lesions) UIA predict worse one-year clinical outcome.

Intracranial Mirror Aneurysms of the Sylvian Artery: About A Case at the Neurosurgery Clinic of the Fann University Hospital in Dakar

Introduction: Bilateral aneurysms of the sylvian artery are rare with an incidence of approximately 1% of all intracranial aneurysms and difficult surgical management. We report a case of an

PICA mirror aneurysms : Rarest of the rare 1

The fifth such case of an incidentally detected PICA aneurysm on digital subtraction angiography is described, with an overview of the development of intracranial vessels and possible embryological perturbations which may lead to formation of this exceedingly rare anatomic abnormality.



Treatment Strategies for Intracranial Mirror Aneurysms.

Clinical characteristics and preferential location of intracranial mirror aneurysms: a comparison with non-mirror multiple and single aneurysms

Patients with mirrorAneurysms had similar clinical characteristics to non-mirror multiple aneurysm patients, and showed a predilection for the cavernous carotid artery, whereas they were comparatively rare in the posterior circulation.

Mirror aneurysms: a reflection on natural history.

Overall, patients with mirror aneurysms were more likely to be women, to report a family history of aneurYSm or SAH, and to have larger aneurisms, which was not an independent predictor of future SAHs.

Mirror Aneurysms Among Multiple Aneurysms: Lesser of the Two Evils.

Treatment of Multiple Intracranial Aneurysms with 1-Stage Coiling

One-stage coiling of multiple aneurysms seems to be safe and effective, with low morbidity and mortality.

Single-Stage Coil Embolization of Multiple Intracranial Aneurysms: Technical Feasibility and Clinical Outcomes

Single-stage coil embolization of multiple unruptured intracranial aneurysms is technically feasible and the time required for such procedures and the rate of complications observed seem acceptable.

A comparative study of 43 patients with mirror-like intracranial aneurysms: risk factors, treatment, and prognosis

More women suffered from MirAn than nMirAn or SingAn, and the results suggest that MirAn was not associated with age, smoking, hypertension, diabetes,smoking, or diabetes.

Multiple intracranial aneurysms: determining the site of rupture.

A retrospective hospital chart and radiograph review was performed of all patients with multiple intracranial aneurysms seen over a 52-month period. Sixty-nine patients with a total of 205 aneurysms

Patient and aneurysm characteristics in multiple intracranial aneurysms.

Most of the population's ruptured aneurysms were 10mm or smaller in size, which may contribute to the management of patients with intracranial aneurYSms.

Long-Term Angiographic Recurrences After Selective Endovascular Treatment of Aneurysms With Detachable Coils

Variables determined to be significant predictors of a recurrence included aneurysm size ≥10 mm, treatment during the acute phase of rupture, incomplete initial occlusions, and duration of follow-up, and long-term monitoring of patients treated by endosaccular coiling is mandatory.
