Differences between anterior circulation aneurysm and posterior circulation intracranial aneurysm

Significant differences between anterior circulation aneurysm and posterior circulation intracranial aneurysm were found for the aspect ratio (AR) (1.91 ± 0.8 vs. 2.75 ± 1.8; p = 0.02) and for the parent artery size (5.08 ± 1.8 mm vs. 3.95 ± 1.5 mm; p < 0.05).

(AR = aneurysm dome depth/neck size)

h: aneurysm dome depth
n: neck size or wide
a: parent artery size
