This video shows the surgical repair of a 2.3 cm ICA aneurysm found in a 58-year-old woman, who presented for right eye vision changes. The patient underwent a right modified orbitozygomatic craniotomy and saphenous vein bypass from the common carotid to the temporal M2. The aneurysm was then opened and repaired. However, since the anterior choroidal artery was not filling, a salvage bypass between the anterior choroidal and the PCOM was done. Both bypasses were patent and the patient has done well with a mRS of 1 for vision symptoms.
