Role of endovascular treatment for ruptured aneurysms involving the anterior spinal artery at the craniocervical junction

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Ruptured aneurysms at the craniocervical junction (CCJ) involving the anterior spinal artery (ASA) are rare and consist of heterogenous lesions with variable clinical entities. However, the standard therapeutic strategy for the lesions has not been well-established. Moreover, despite advances in modern neurointervention, reports describing endovascular treatment for this specific lesion have been few. Here, we report three cases of ruptured aneurysms on the pial tributary of the ASA at the CCJ, which were subsequently treated by transarterial glue injection or coil embolization. Endovascular treatment can be a therapeutic option, particularly for these ruptured aneurysms. Either transarterial glue injection or coil embolization can be effective depending on the type of etiology and the surrounding vasculature anatomy.
