✓ Saccular aneurysms arising at locations other than at arterial divisions are extremely rare. The authors describe eight such aneurysms that protruded from the dorsal wall of the internal carotid artery (ICA) and were unrelated to any arterial junction. Radical surgery was performed in all eight cases. The aneurysms were saccular with a fragile wide or semifusiform neck. Intraoperative rupture occurred in three cases. From this experience, it is emphasized that these unusual protruding aneurysms of the dorsal ICA should be clipped with the clip blade parallel to the parent artery. In addition to clipping, complete wrapping with fascia or Bemsheet (cellulose fabric) is often advisable to prevent slippage of clips or postoperative rupture of residual aneurysm.
