BACKGROUND Although configurations of the posterior cerebral artery (PCA) and posterior communicating artery (PComA) have been extensively studied, reported rates of adult (AC), fetal (FC) and transitional configurations (TC) vary widely due to techniques used. A histological technique was applied to measure the circumference of the arteries and this was compared with caliper measurements taken from the same arteries. METHODS Ninety-five brains were examined. The external diameters of all pre… CONTINUE READING
