Anatomical Variations of the Anterior Part of the Circle of Willis - An Autopsic Study

Dumitrescu AM, Cobzaru R.G, Ripa C, Turliuc S, Costea C.F, Tanase M.D, Sorodoc V, Costache A.D and Sava A

The arterial circle of Willis (CoW), also called the arterial circle or circulus arteriosus cerebri, represents an anastomotic arterial canal located at the base of the brain, in the inter peduncular fossa, which connects the internal carotid and the verte brobasilar system. The purpose of this study is to identify anomalies/anatomical variants of the anterior part of CoW in the population of the North-Eastern region of Romania by researching macroscopic aspects of the constituent arteries of CoW obtained during the autopsy procedure. There was noted the presence or absence, variations in the shape, position, or trajectory of each arterial segment of the anterior part of the CoW, comparing them with the outcomes from other various international studies.
