Abstract

A 36 year old woman who ruptured a basilar artery aneurysm at 38 weeks gestation in her second pregnancy was managed successfully by endovascular embolisation 36 hours after an emergency Caesarean section. The timing of treatment along with the obstetric, neurosurgical and anaesthetic aspects of this complex problem are discussed along with a review of the current literature on the subject.
