Broad-necked middle cerebral artery aneurysms present unique challenges for the vascular neurosurgeon, who must contend with smaller vessels and often a complex clipping strategy. Due to their superficial location, these lesions are still commonly selected for microsurgical clipping. We present a case of a 42-year-old woman with significant vascular disease with a right middle cerebral artery aneurysm. We discuss the key surgical steps, demonstrate the microsurgical dissection and intraoperative rupture encountered and the final clipping strategy, as well as the postoperative course in this operative video presentation.

With the advent of endovascular modalities, endovascular coiling has become a progressively more common method of addressing intracranial aneurysms. When despite coiling, an aneurysm continues to enlarge, open microsurgical clipping is a viable, though technically demanding option. We present a unique case of failed coiling of a giant ophthalmic region aneurysm, in which the aneurysm was successfully managed via open microsurgical approach. We highlight the unique challenges faced and demonstrate the surgical process in an operative video presentation.
