Contralateral Vasospasm in an Uncomplicated Elective Anterior Communicating Artery Aneurysm Clipping.
Cerebral vasospasm (CVS) following clipping of an unruptured aneurysm is a rare phenomenon. When it does occur, CVS usually occurs on the side ipsilateral to the surgical intervention.Here, we report the case of a 68-year-old male who underwent right-sided pterional craniotomy for clipping of an unruptured, anterior communicating artery aneurysm and experienced contralateral vasospasm five days later.We further discuss the pathophysiology underlying vasospasm after uncomplicated craniotomy and non-hemorrhagic aneurysm clipping.
