As pointed out by the authors, the long-term risks of stroke and de novo aneurysm formation are associated with carotid occlusion. Petrous internal carotid aneurysm (PA) concomitant with a mass lesion and cranial nerve palsy is relatively rare. Onset of secondary aneurysm was generally heralded by bleeding (p<0.001), while onset of primary aneurysm was heralded by cranial nerve deficit (p= 0.0014). Aneurysms of the internal carotid artery in the carotid canal of the petrous temporal bone are relatively uncommon lesions. The outcomes of different treatment methods should therefore be assessed.

They are thought to arise from traumatic, mycotic, or congenital etiologies. Other symptoms can occur secondary to pressure of the aneurysm on surrounding structures such as veins and nerves. Common indications for treatment of CCAs are projection of the aneurysm into the subarachnoid space, acute thrombosis, worsening ophthalmoparesis or ophthalmoplegia, intractable or in- tolerable ocular or retroorbital pain, possibly coagulopa- thy, and/or increasing aneurysmal enlargement with or without osseous erosion into the surrounding sinuses.
