Whether the posterior communicating artery (PcomA) can be safely compromised during endovascular treatment of a PcomA aneurysm is a matter of debate. Here we present clinical and radiologic outcomes, given this scenario. From data prospectively accrued between January 2004 and December 2012, records of 44 patients harboring 46 PcomA aneurysms were retrieved. All had suffered PcomA compromise in the course of endovascular coil embolization. Patients/aneurysms were stratified into those with… CONTINUE READING
