Continuous ventricle drainage was performed to control intracranial pressure. Recurrent haemorrhage occurred four times during 15 days after the initial haemorrhage, and the patient died on the 17th day. Histologically, thrombus and a newly formed protective layer was identified at the rupture point. In this case, new haemorrhage was believed to have occurred through the protective layer. Indian ink perfusion examination revealed that the haemorrhage had occurred through the protective layer and bled outwardly (Fig.

At high magnification, the calcium had a coral-like structure (Fig. 4). On histologic analysis, fat-staining masses were situated deeply subintimally: they appeared as either round bodies or continuous masses between thin intimal and adventitial layers. The atheromatous masses generally bore a morphologic resemblance to the calcifications seen in microradiography. Aneurysmal rupture was present at sites near degenerative atheromatous or atherosclerotic changes. At the microscopic level lipid inftltration as well as calcium were found within the various layers of the aneurysmal walls (Fig.

A secondary evagination at that point may have been smoothed out and an atheromatous plaque, detached as a consequence of circulatory conditions. Seen through the surgical microscope, such a point generally is somewhat darker and bluish or reddish in colour. From the surgical point of view, in order to avoid preoperative rupture it always seems preferable to leave such a weak point untouched and to try to reach the neck directly with the clip, within freeing the aneurysm as a whole. If anatomical circumstances are such that a clip is to be placed over a part of the aneurysm where a secondary evagination is seen in the microscope, it is always safer to try to wrap that part (Fig.
