The arteries studied were the anterior communicating and the A1 (precommunicating) and A2 (postcommunicating) segments of the anterior cerebral artery. The segment which originates from the internal carotid artery to the origin of the anterior communicating artery was defined as segment A1 and the segment that originates from the AComA to the site proximal to its bifurcation in the pericallosal and callosomarginal arteries was defined as segment A2 (Krzyzewski et al., 2015).
The middle cerebral artery extends laterally and slightly anteriorly from the internal carotid artery root at a depth of 35-55 mm.
