Abstract

The arterial circle of Willis provides collateral circulation to meet the high cerebral metabolic demand. Many studies show that circle of Willis is atypical in 40-70% of population and is associated with higher incidence of cerebral vascular diseases. Advancement in imaging facilities such as computed tomographic angiography (CTA) helps in investigating the cerebral vessels and their anomalies. The main objective of this study was to identify the variations in the mean diameters of the circle of Willis vessels in patients who underwent brain CTA in Hospital Universiti Sains Malaysia. The databases were studied retrospectively by recording the diameters of the vascular segments. The sample was divided into two groups; with and without aneurysms for statistical analysis. The results showed that gender and side differences in vessels diameters were not proven. In conclusion the vessels diameters in this population were comparable to others.
