The particular emphasis of the cranial work was on the following locations: where those cranial nerves cross the borders of tentorium cerebelli, as they pass through cavernous sinus, where the particularly vulnerable spot was, the fibro-osseous canal beneath the posterior clinoid processes, at sutura petrobasilaris, and where those nerves enter the orbit through fissure orbital is superior.
Traumatic aneurysms (approximately 1% of intracranial aneurysms) are often distal and most often result from penetrating trauma, adjacent fractures, or impact of the vessel with the falx cerebri or tentorium cerebelli (Figure 3).
