Secondary aneurysm due to arterial injury during surgical procedures.


Most secondary aneurysms following trauma to the cerebral artery were reported as a complication of head injury. Three cases of aneurysm due to arterial injury during operations are reported. A search of the world literature revealed ten other cases. The responsible surgical procedure and the location of these aneurysms varied. Rupture of these aneurysms was observed in four cases at 10 to 23 days following the primary operation. Only two patients died.
