De novo cavernous aneurysms development after contralateral parent artery occlusion—Two cases report
Abstract: A 53-year-old woman developed a de novo aneurysm after contralateral internal carotid artery occlusion, and another 42-year-old woman developed a de novo aneurysm after contralateral vertebral artery occlusion. Both patients experienced a rapid development of de novo aneurysm formation, 6 and 9 months, respectively. The development of de novo aneurysm on the contralateral artery after parent artery occlusion showed that female and medium age may be contributory factors. In addition, the hemodynamic changes may be associated with the development of de novo aneurysm after contralateral parent artery occlusion.
