A retrospective, observational, cross-sectional descriptive study performed at the Department of Human Anatomy and the Department of Radiology, of our institution.

The segment which originates from the internal carotid artery to the origin of the anterior communicating artery was defined as segment A1 and the segment that originates from the AComA to the site proximal to its bifurcation in the pericallosal and callosomarginal arteries was defined as segment A2 Krzyzewski et al.

Previous studies have found a significant difference in creebral prevalence of anatomical variants of the cerebral arterial circle among different ethnic groups De Silva et al.

Knowledge of the prevalence of the azygos variant is relevant because in an occlusive event of the ACA due to thromboembolic disease or during cerebra procedures, ischemia of the medial aspect of both cerebral hemispheres occurs. The timing of injection varies, with options including fixed scan delay, test bolus injection, or automated bolus tracking technique. Normal variants of the cerebral circulation at multidetector CT angiography. Patients with surgical clips causing metal artifacts, intracerebral hematoma, a tumor, previous angiotomografix or any space-occupying lesion that involves or modify the anatomy of the cerebral arterial circulation were excluded.

Thank you for updating your details. Angiotomography scans of patients 1 to 99 years of age were included. All anatomical variants that have been described so far in the literature have been included, and the precommunicating A1 postcommunicating A2 segments of the anterior cerebral artery were analyzed. Neurosurgery, 51 4 Suppl. Fourty nine patients were prospectively studied within the period from january to june A database was created in SPSS version At the neck, it ascends inside the transverse foramina from C6 to C2 where it emerges and enters the cranium through the foramen magnum.


All patients were injected with an intravenous iodinated contrast media UltravistBayer, Germany at a dose of 1 to 2 ml per kg with an injection rate of 4 ml per second. Each vertebral artery arises from the 1 st part of the corresponding subclavian artery. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of anatomical variants of the anterior cerebral artery ACA and the anterior communicating artery AComA by 3D computed tomography angiography 3D CTA in Mexican individuals.

Of all atypical variants, Both methods were analyzed individually and posteriorly joined and with surgical results in both. Aneurysms located in the ACA and AComA are difficult to manage and have a poor prognosis due to angioarchitecture, blood flow, their deep location in the brain, and little known anatomical variants.

The internal carotid artery ascends to enter the skull through the carotid canal and bifurcates into the anterior and middle cerebral arteries. Anatomical variations of the anterior communicating artery complex: Our study is the first to use 3D CTA to report the prevalence of anatomic variants of the anterior cerebral artery and the anterior communicating artery in Mexican population.

This protocol was approved by the Ethics and Research Committees of the institution of origin, registration number AH This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors. Angio TC were performed in a helicoidal tomographer, processed in third dimension, multiplane reconstruction, of shading surface and maximal projection intensity reconstructions.

Angiotomogrfia using multidetector CT MDCT after intravenous contrast administration, the vessels become enhanced with contrast allow them to be differentiated from adjacent tissues. Thirty five aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations were detected.

Moreover, the absence of blood perfusion pressure, the possible contraction of the vascular wall in individuals postmortem, latex infiltration, and fixation with formaldehyde prior to vascular measurements could alter the diameters obtained by cadaveric methods Li et al.

Our study supports and extends the results reported by previous studies. Of the atypical variants, For the inclussion criterium, patients nagiotomografia antecedents of subarachnoid hemorrhage, diagnosed through lumbar puncture or simple anterior computed axial tomography or with strong clinical suspecion of suffering for aneurysmsor arteriovenous malformations. Cadaveric studies reported as the most prevalent atypical variants: No variant showed a significant association with sex or age.


Variants of cerebral arteries – anterior circulation. There was no significant association between the presence of the azygos or the triple Angiotomografka artery with other variants. Are the distributions of variations of circle of Willis different in different populations? We found a high prevalence of “atypical” variants. Accuracy of CT angiography in the assessment of the circle of Willis: It my substitute preoperatory cerebrsl arteriography and speed up therapeutic behavior.

Moreover, since there are few studies using the same methodology, our results were compared with various techniques including slice CTA, whose sensitivity and specificity vary with respect to the slice used by us, on the other hand the analysis of images studies are operator-dependent so it can limit our results.

Our results were within the ranges previously described with cadaveric and imaging techniques, showing a greater similarity with results from studies in Polish population Klimek- Piotrowska et al. Anterior cerebral artery; Anatomical variant; Anterior communicating artery; Cerebral arterial circle; Subarachnoid hemorrhage; Cerebral endovascular surgery.

In Mexico there are two previous studies that describe anatomical variants of the cerebral arterial circle, one in cadavers and another with MRA Monroy-Sosa et al. The mean diameter found in the neck of the aneurysm was 0. The diagnostic contribution of CT volumetric rendering techniques in routine practice. Atypical variants in order of frequency were: Check for errors and try again.

We sincerely thank Neri Alvarez-Villalobos, M. Some studies do not describe specific variants of the anterior communicating artery and group them as “fenestrations of the AComA”, which limits the anatomical knowledge of this vessel Kayembe et al.

In the literature reviewed, there are few reports that have evaluated this arterial segment. In our study, we obtained a total prevalence of Anatomical variations of anterior communicating artery.

The literature suggests that CTA represents the ideal radiologic method for the evaluation of cdrebral cerebral arterial circle and its collaterals Li et al. About Blog Go ad-free.
