This is the first study to investigate the prevalence of anatomical variants in the anterior cerebral artery and the anterior communicating artery in Mexican population using 3D computed tomography. There are few disadvantages compared to catheter angiography, however, the inability to select a single vessel and the fact that it images the vessel at only one time does limit the ability to evaluate flow related features of complex malformations.

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. Vascular variants were classified according to the classification of Kayembe et al.

Comparison of the current study with previous cadaveric studies. Moreover, CTA is the current method for initial assessment of cerebral circulation in suspected acute stroke or subarachnoid hemorrhage and the technique of choice for the evaluation of aneurysms Zhang et al.

Angiografía por catéter

Modification of Kayembe, Sasahara, and Hazam Classification. A significant association between the hypoplastic variant of the right A1 segment and hypoplasia of the left A1 and the right A2 was found, while hypoplasia of the left A1 was associated with hypoplasia of the right A2.

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. 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.


Our study supports and extends the results reported by previous studies. Both vertebral arteries unite to form the basilar artery which passes in front of the pons and ends by bifurcation to posterior cerebral arteries on both sides.

Thirty five aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations were detected. Normal variants of the cerebral circulation at multidetector CT angiography. Anatomical variations of the anterior communicating artery complex: However, most have limitations due to small sample size, not making morphometric measurements of vessels, angiotomograria including all the variants described in the literature; also, the postcommunicating segment A2 of the ACA, whose anatomy influences the flow dynamics of the cerebral arterial circle is rarely wngiotomografia.

It also has lower resolution than catheter angiography making the assessment of subtle wall changes, such as angioto,ografia seen in dissection or vasculitismore difficult to identify.

Angio Tomografia Cerebral

The brain is supplied by two sets of angioto,ografia. The typical form of this vessel was ferebral in The variants in the A2 segment have been little studied so far in the literature compared to the rest of the vessels. In imaging studies, the most prevalent atypical variants were: Measures were made using a window range of WW: In our study, an aneurysm associated with the azygos variant but not with a fenestration of the ACA or AComA was found.

The anatomical variants of the cerebral arterial circle have been described in cadaveric studies by digital subtraction angiography DSAmagnetic resonance angiography MRA and computed tomographic angiography CTA.


Anatomical variations of the anterior cerebral arterial circle visualized by multidetector computed tomography angiography: About Blog Go ad-free. The presence of an occlusive event in a dominant A2 segment of the anterior cerebral artery when a hypoplasia variant exists in the contralateral A2 segment increases the risk of regional ischemia in both hemispheres Kayembe et al.

Are the distributions of variations of circle of Willis different in different populations? The mean diameter was the same in the right and left A2 segments, 1. However, the presence of atypical variants represents an important number that should be taken into account in clinical and surgical procedures.

Microsurgical anatomy of the distal anterior cerebral artery.

Neurosurgery, 51 4 Suppl. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and morphometric characteristics of anatomical variants of the AComA and the precommunicating A1 and postcommunicating A2 segments of the anterior cerebral artery by cerebral computerized angiotomography with 3D reconstruction 3D CTA.

We found at least one “atypical” variant in a third of the study population Angiotomography scans of patients 1 to 99 years of age were included. To obtain high-quality images of vessels, iodinated contrast media should be administered at a high rate. Patients with surgical clips causing metal artifacts, intracerebral hematoma, a tumor, previous surgery or any space-occupying lesion that involves or modify the anatomy of the cerebral arterial circulation were excluded.

A database was created in SPSS version
