Abstract

A number of reports have suggested that giant aneurysms of the internal carotid artery can be treated by extracranial-intracranial (EC-IC) bypass and subsequent ligation of the internal carotid artery (IC) with little morbidity [5, 6, 8–11]. Some literature, however, stresses the risk of ischemic complications related to carotid ligation [2, 9]. The purpose of this study is to confirm the effect of this approach and to explore the cause of ischemic complications encountered during or after carotid occlusion by sequential computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
