Figure 4: Case 8: A 15-year old girl with 3 pseudoaneurysms secondary to traumatic injury to the right intracranial internal carotid artery. The anteroposterior (a) and lateral (b) cerebral angiograms of the right internal carotid artery show 3 pseudoaneurysms on the right intracranial internal carotid artery (arrows). A 3D reconstruction cerebral angiogram image (c) immediately after the placement of the two Willis covered stents, demonstrates the existence of a residual pseudoaneurysm sac (arrow). The anteroposterior view of the 320-row 3D-CTA (d) shows total occlusion of the sac of the 3 pseudoaneurysms, 6 months after the covered stent placement. The follow-up anteroposterior (e) and lateral (f) cerebral angiograms of the right internal carotid artery 18 months after the procedure demonstrate complete obliteration of the 3 pseudoaneurysms, with preservation of the luminal patency of the parent artery. A 320-row 3D-CTA (g) 36 months after the procedure shows total obliteration of the 3 pseudoaneurysms with preservation of patency of the parent artery. The image also demonstrates the position of the covered stent (arrow)
