Objective: Thickened intracranial aneurysm wall with atherosclerotic remodeling is a part of its degenerative scenario. Current magnetic resonance (MR)-vessel wall imaging enables the detection of atherosclerotic wall thickening as aneurysm wall enhancement. The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between identified atherosclerotic remodeling in vessel wall imaging, and systemic atherosclerosis-related risk factors. Methods: A total of 39 aneurysms in 38 consecutive patients scheduled to undergo microsurgical clipping or endovascular coiling of intracranial aneurysms were prospectively evaluated.
