RESUMO

É registrado o caso de um paciente que apresentava um aneurisma gigante da artéria cerebral média esquerda, e volumosa malformação vascular hemodinamicamente relacionada. Após extirpação da malformação vascular, houve desaparecimento espontâneo do aneurisma, conforme demonstrado em angio-grafias repetidas uma semana, seis meses e um ano após cirurgia. Atribuímos o fato à redução do fluxo sanguíneo regional cerebral, após a extirpação da malformação vascular, e a tendência natural desses aneurismas gigantes se trombosarem parcialmente.


SUMMARY

A case of a patient with a giant aneurysm of the left middle cerebral artery and a huge arteriovenous malformation hemodinamically related is reported. Complete thrombosis of the aneurysm was observed after extirpation of the arteriovenous malformation as shown by angiography one week, six months and a year post-operatively. Reduction of the regional cebral blood flow after extirpation of the arteriovenous malformation and the natural tendency of these giant aneurysms to partially thrombose were to be the explanation for our result.
