Abstract

Introduction: The treatment of giant intracranial aneurysms is one of the most challenging cerebrovascular problems of neurosurgery. We report the rupture of a giant, lobulated, and almost completely thrombosed middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysm that is the ninth such report in the literature. We also investigated additional solutions used in the treatment of this patient.
