Retrograde back-coiling technique for a ruptured aneurysm of a double-origin posterior inferior cerebellar artery.


The double origin of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) is a variant anastomosis of a residual lateral spinal artery and native intracranial PICA that has been associated with intracranial aneurysm formation.
