Cerebral angiography during operation for intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations

Technical note

Restricted access

✓ Angiography during the operative procedure is desirable, but is often difficult because of the problem of maintaining a needle or cannula in an artery for long periods of time. Cannulation of the superficial temporal artery avoids this technical problem. The artery is easily found, cannulation is simple, and obliteration of the artery is of no consequence. Cerebral angiography then provides a means for prompt evaluation of the surgical procedure at any time during the actual operation.
