Abstract:
The treatment paradigm for intracranial aneurysms has evolved with technological advancements, resulting in improved patient outcomes. In particular, the management of posterior circulation aneurysms has shifted to favor endovascular therapy (EVT). However, this modality is not always accessible in low-resource settings. In our country (Trinidad and Tobago), neuroendovascular services are not readily available. We report a case of a patient with a ruptured left posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) aneurysm (Fisher grade 4) who underwent a far-lateral craniotomy and clip ligation. It was done by a fellowship-trained vascular neurosurgeon in a public hospital and resulted in an excellent patient outcome. This highlights the need to maintain this surgical skill set in resource-poor countries, in spite of the increasing popularity of endovascular therapy.
