Abstract

Fenestration in A1 segment of anterior cerebral artery is a rare entity. Treatment of aneurysms derived from a fenestrated artery may be more challenging because the fenestrations provide specific difficulties. A thorough radiologic work-up driven by high clinical suspicion is needed. Endovascular treatment, although it has been tried only once,7 appears to be the treatment of choice. We successfully treated 2 cases using endovascular techniques and can conclude that endovascular treatment is a safe and effective treatment of aneurysms associated with this rare variation in the A1 segment of ACA.
