Surgical treatment for vertebral artery-posterior inferior cerebellar artery aneurysms: special reference to the importance of the cerebellomedullary fissure dissection.

Abstract

OBJECT The cerebellomedullary fissure (CMF) is a space between the cerebellum and the medulla oblongata, which often adhere to each other. The purpose of the present study was to demonstrate the importance of the unilateral CMF dissection for clipping vertebral artery (VA)-posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) aneurysms. METHODS Five adult cadaveric… (More)
