AIM: Knowledge of cerebrovascular morphology is integral in planning neuroendovascular interventions, especially for procedures involving placement of stents, flow diverters or stentrievers. There is insufficient data on angiographic normative values of cerebral circulation in the pediatric age group since angiograms are uncommonly performed in children except for arteriovenous malformations in which arterial dimensions are larger than normal. We aimed to measure the diameters of internal carotid circulation (ICC) arteries on digital subtraction angiograms of pediatric patients and determine the growth trends.
