|dc.description.abstract||Middle cerebral artery is the thick one of two terminal parts of internal carotis artery. The objectives of this
study are to obtain morphometric measurements for middle cerebral artery, to carry out morphologic typology,
to observe different variations and to help similar anatomic and clinic studies.
In our study, we retrospectively examined cranial images of 50 patients, 18 to 65 years of age, taken by Multi
Detector Computed Tomography between the years 2015-2020, which are kept in the Radiology Department
of Meram Medical Faculty, Necmettin Erbakan University. The measurements used in the study included
diameter, cross-sectional area, lenght and angel details. Different variations were studied by morphologic
typology and any cases with anomaly were also carefully evaluated.
Our study enables to compare morphometric measurements with morphologic typology. Furthermore, both
measurements and typology also helped to find out correlations between the side and the age and gender
As a result of this study, no statistically significant finding was existing in morphometric measurements to
compare sexual differences. However, in the comparison of the sides, the fact that some parameters were higher
in the right side, whereas some were higher in the left was found to be statistically significant. We did not
observe any difference in mean values of the age parameters. Morphologically, the most common
monofurcation in the furcation of M1 segment was the most prevalent in the typology from its lenght from the
first branch to the second. We did not observe any aneurysm. Moreover, the accessory and duplicated middle
cerebral artery was observed once in all cases and no fenestration was found.
We believe that the study findings and typology of middle cerebral artery origin will make a new contribution
to the literatüre and it will be useful from an anatomically and clinically.||en_US
