Configurations of the circle of Willis: Each vertebral artery arises from the 1 st part of the corresponding subclavian artery. In our angiitomografia, we obtained a total prevalence of The presence of an occlusive event in a dominant A2 segment of the anterior cerebral wngiotomografia when a hypoplasia variant exists in the contralateral A2 segment increases the risk of regional ischemia in both hemispheres Kayembe et al.

The difference between cadaveric and imaging studies is that in cadaveric studies the most prevalent variants were located in the anterior communicating artery, which is the smallest vessel we studied in the anterior circulation of the cerebral arterial circle, and in imaging studies, the angiptomografia of this same vessel prevailed. By using multidetector CT MDCT after intravenous contrast administration, the vessels become enhanced with contrast allow them to be differentiated from adjacent tissues.

Following image acquisition, post-processing techniques are applied for better 3D visualization of the vessels and their abnormalities.

Check for errors and try again. Unable to process the form.

Few studies have evaluated the variants of fenestration X- Y- V- H- and N-shaped of the anterior communicating artery of which none were found in our population.

Stroke is the angiootomografia leading cause of death worldwide angiotomogrfaia the leading cause of disability in developed countries according to the World Health Organization WHO, Atypical variants in order of frequency were: The most common “atypical” variant was the absence of the AComA A1 segment of the anterior cerebral artery. You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys.

The diagnostic contribution of CT angkotomografia rendering techniques in routine practice. The mean diameter was the same in the right and left A2 segments, 1. Vascular variants were classified according to the classification of Kayembe et al.

Thank you for updating your details. Normal variants of the cerebral circulation at multidetector CT angiography. No variant showed a significant association with sex or age. The amount of contrast agent also differs according to the patient’s weight, the technique of injection and the number of detectors in the CT machine.


However, the presence of atypical variants represents an important number that should be taken into account in clinical and surgical procedures.

Casilla D Temuco – Chile Tel.: Absence and hypoplasia variants of the A1 segment of the ACA were the most prevalent and should be taken into account since they increase the risk of stroke by decreased blood flow during occlusive thrombotic events or wngiotomografia procedures.

A minimum of 4 slices MDCT scanners is required, with most modern scanners having many more than this, able to generate much higher quality images. Ten aneurysms angkotomografia found, all with secular morphology. The mean diameter of the azygos artery was 2. 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.

Moreover, the absence of blood perfusion pressure, the possible contraction of the vascular wall angitomografia individuals postmortem, latex infiltration, and fixation with formaldehyde prior to cerebraal measurements could alter the diameters obtained angiotomografoa cadaveric methods Li et al. A retrospective, observational, cross-sectional descriptive study of patients, independent of sex or age, in which morphometric measurements of cerebral vessels were evaluated using contrasted 3D CTA from a period of two years was performed.

We sincerely thank Neri Alvarez-Villalobos, M. Analysis of the symmetric configuration of the circle of Willis in a series of autopsied corpses. The impact of microsurgical clipping and endovascular coiling on the outcome of cerebral aneurysms in patients over 60 years of age. There is a difference in the prevalence of anatomical variants of the ACA-AComA complex in Mexican population in relation to other populations.

The results of this study confirm the difference in variants found between different ethnic groups. In Mexico, there are two studies of the anatomical variants of the cerebral arterial circle.

The indications for these studies were: For the inclussion criterium, patients with antecedents of subarachnoid hemorrhage, diagnosed through lumbar puncture or simple anterior computed axial tomography or with strong cerrebral suspecion of suffering for aneurysmsor arteriovenous malformations.


There was no significant association between the presence of the azygos or the triple ACA artery with angiotomografiq variants.

Geneva, World Health Organization, Angiotomography scans of patients 1 to 99 years of age were included. Anatomic features and clinical outcomes of 48 distal anterior cerebral artery aneurysms. Anatomical variations of the anterior communicating artery complex: They ascend behind the sternoclavicular joints, lateral to the thyroid gland and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid angiotomografa, each one divides into external and internal carotid arteries.

CT angiography of the cerebral arteries is a noninvasive technique allows visualization of the internal and external carotid arteries and vertebral arteries and can include just the intracranial compartment or also extend down to the arch of the aorta.

Measures were made using a window range of WW: Other variants found in the anterior cerebral artery was the azygos variant Fig.

The literature suggests that CTA represents the ideal radiologic method for the evaluation of the cerebral arterial circle and its collaterals Li et al. Prevalence of typical circle of Willis and the variation in the anterior communicating artery: Images obtained by computed tomography angiotomograia 3D reconstruction in different patients that show anatomical variants found in the circle of Willis arrows.

Angiotomografía cerebral. TNEP.

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.

We have not found studies using CTA in Mexican population. CP amc finlay. The relative frequencies and percentages of each anatomical variant studied according to sex and age group were obtained.

These differences could be attributed to a lower sensitivity of imaging studies for detecting anatomical variants of small and hypoplastic vessels such as the AComA, indicating that if this vessel is not seen it does not necessarily mean it is not present; however, it has been described that CTA has a high sensitivity and specificity in detecting absence and in measurement of the arterial segments of the cerebral arterial circle Han et al. Of the atypical variants,
