Persistent fetal intracranial arteries: A comprehensive review of anatomical and clinical significance: A review

Academic Article


  • As fetal intracranial vessels may persist into adulthood, knowledge of their anatomy and potential clinical and surgical complications should be borne in mind by the surgeon. A comprehensive review of these vessels, however, is not easily identified in the literature. Therefore, the present analysis was undertaken so that such information is available to the clinician and morphologist. ©1944-2011 by the American Association of Neurosurgeons.
