Background: The circle of Willis, present in the interpeduncular cistern at the base of the brain, is the major source of blood supply of the brain. Posterior communicating artery is its most important component which connects vertebro-basilar and carotid arterial system. Absence or hypoplasia of this artery will influence development of collateral channel in case of obstruction or narrowing of the major cerebral arteries, thus explaining the different neurological symptoms and the prognosis of… CONTINUE READING
