Ten aneurysms of the horizontal portion of the anterior cerebral artery (A1) were analyzed. These 10 aneurysms were classified into three types according to the mode of the origin of the neck of the aneurysm from the A1 segment: (a) an aneurysm originating from the junction of the A1 segment and the lenticulostriate artery, (b) one from the proximal end of the fenestration of the A1 and (c) one from the top of the A1 loop (elongation and kinking of the A1 segment). In these aneurysms, their size, the side of the A1 segment with an aneurysm, the multiplicity of aneurysms, the coexistence of hypertension, the grade of the patients, the laterality of the subarachnoid blood clots (as seen on computed tomography scans) and surgical outcome were analyzed.
