Reconstruction of the carotid artery by using a radial artery graft is a useful option that can produce reliable long-term patency for the surgical treatment of giant and/or large aneurysms of the cavernous and paraclinoid internal carotid artery (ICA). During the past 10 years, 43 patients with intracavernous and paraclinoid giant aneurysms of the ICA have been treated by reconstruction of the ICA with radial artery grafts after ligation of the cervical ICA. The long-term patency of the… CONTINUE READING
