Abstract

Objective: In the surgery for a distal anterior cerebral aneurysm which is applied with a vertical head position, the dome of the aneurysm makes it difficult the expose the neck and the proximal artery. This study was performed to evaluate the applicability of the alternative contralateral interhemispheric approach with a horizontal head position for clipping these aneurysms.
