  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 48-year-old female presented with a subarachnoid haemorrhage (Hunt & Hess II and Fisher grade III). Angiogram revealed a broad-neck anterior communicating artery aneurysm (Fig. 9.1a). A lobule was seen projecting from base of aneurysm, near the neck, indicating the probable site of rupture.
