Subarachnoid hemorrhage from intracranial dissecting aneurysm

J Neurosurg. 1984 Feb;60(2):325-34. doi: 10.3171/jns.1984.60.2.0325.

Abstract

Rupture of an intracranial dissecting aneurysm is a rare but dangerous event. The authors' experience with 14 cases of these lesions on the vertebrobasilar circulation suggests that these aneurysms have typical angiographic silhouettes and that, at least in the vertebral artery, they are treatable by proximal arterial occlusion.
