• The use of cerebral angiography is imperative in any case of intracranial bleeding in which definitive treatment is contemplated. Without angiography, the surgical treatment of aneurysms would be limited to those localizing themselves by calcification or localizing neurological signs. Aneurysms of the anterior cerebral system constitute 20 to 25 % of all the aneurysms. Clipping of one anterior cerebral artery may in most cases be effective treatment, but in some instances it may be the only possible intracranial procedure. Whenever possible the aneurysms should be excluded from the circulation.
