The changes of the diameters of ipsilateral PICAs and AICAs were evaluated by Spearman's rho.
In this procedure PICAs, AICAs, SCAs, or PCAs are anastomosed end-to-end, end-to-side, or side-to-side to the contralateral equivalent arteries or to the extracranial arteries such as superficial temporal artery and the occipital artery to achieve the revascularization of the neural parenchyma [5, 6].
The most common variation was isolated agenesis of one of the PICAs. In the vast majority of these cases, the blood supply of the agenetic PICA territory was coming from the ipsilateral well-developed AICA or from the contralateral PICA by interarterial anastomosis.
A spokesman for Kirklees Council environmental services said: "The authority took Picas advice on the design and siting of the dovecote and public education on the feeding of feral pigeons and removing excess food on a daily basis.
PiCAS gave free advice to the city council until 2002 - the partnership began in 1997 when PiCAS met with councillors and CVOne to talk about reducing pigeon numbers.
Alan Bennett, the council's head of environmental health, said: "PiCAS were keen that we follow their advice to the letter but our decision was to try a twofold approach to keep the pigeon population from growing - proofing buildings and building a dovecote.
Guy Merchant, director of PICAS, said: "The pigeon problem has been exasperated by the netting on the railway bridge, which has displaced the birds from their nesting place and they are now causing a problem in the town."
