A review of the literature focused on basilar artery
pathology is very limited and only includes cases of basilar artery
occlusion or aneurysm formation.

Aneurysms Associated with Fenestrations; AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 23:, June/July 2002, 958-964
The Saltzman type I PTA joins the basilar artery
at the level between superior cerebellar artery (SCA) and anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA).
Trigeminal neuralgia due to compression of the trigeminal root by a basilar artery
Stent-based mechanical thrombectomy in acute basilar artery
The cerebral basilar artery
is one of the arteries that supplies the brain with oxygen-rich blood.
This edition has new cranial CT sequences of the axial and coronal temporal bone; an expanded MR imaging section with new 3-Tesla MR images of the temporal lobe and hippocampus, basilar artery
, cranial nerves, cavernous sinus, and other areas; and new arterial MR angiography sequences of the neck and additional larynx images.
It narrows the internal carotid artery, decreases blood flow to the brain, and forces stenosis of the anterior cerebral artery, middle cerebral artery, basilar artery
and posterior cerebral artery.
In all cases, two vertebral arteries joined to form the basilar artery
The exudates also involved the basilar artery
and several branches of the Circle of Willis.
Posteriorly, the basilar artery
divides into two posterior cerebral arteries at the upper border of pons and each communicates with the ipsilateral ICA by the posterior communicating artery (PCA).
reported a case of thrombosed, fenestrated basilar artery
mimicking an aneurysm of the vertebrobasilar junction.
7-13] On the other hand, on the basis of clinical tests carried out in patients with occlusion of the internal carotid artery and occlusion of the basilar artery
, it was concluded that the increased risk of stroke exist in patients whose posterior communicating artery diameter was < 0.
Efficacy and current limitations of intravascular stents for intracranial internal carotid, vertebral, and basilar artery
In this sub-arachnoid space, the 3rd nerves pass either side of the midline basilar artery
and between two of its major branches--the superior cerebellar and posterior cerebral arteries then just below and lateral to the posterior communicating artery, a key component of the arterial Circle of Willis.
