Angiographic demonstration of the meningeal branch of the posterior cerebral artery, or the artery of Davidoff and Schechter, is extremely rare. The authors describe a case of successful selective catheterization and embolization of a pathologically enlarged artery of Davidoff and Schechter, permitting successful preoperative devascularization of a large falcine meningioma.
Abbreviation used in this paper: PCA = posterior cerebral artery.
