Natural Y-shaped radial artery graft bypass for a complex middle cerebral artery aneurysm: A case report


Giant thrombosed middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms are difficult to treat and sometimes require complex revascularization using allografts. We describe a technical method using revascularization with a natural Y-shaped graft that provides a normal variation for a complex MCA aneurysm. A 65-year-old man with a giant thrombosed MCA aneurysm presented with right hemiparesis and aphasia. The patient had a history of clipping surgery for the ipsilateral side of the MCA aneurysm 25 years before, and a de novo aneurysm developed over the previous 18 years.
