Spontaneous Regression of an Intracranial Aneurysm Following Remote Aneurysm Clipping: Evaluation with High-Resolution Vessel Wall MRI
- 192 Downloads
Spontaneous regression of an unruptured aneurysm is very rare. We present a case of a 64-year-old woman with an unruptured cerebral aneurysm in which spontaneous regression occurred after contralateral clipping. High-resolution magnetic resonance imaging showed that the aneurysm had decreased in size and there was no evidence of thrombus.
Level of Evidence Case, Level IV.
KeywordsSpontaneous aneurysm regression Contralateral clipping High-resolution MRI
