Adana Numune Eğitim ve Araştırma Hastanesi, Nöroşirürji Kliniği, Yüreğir, Adana, Türkiye The initial description of the cerebral vasculature was produced by anatomist Thomas Wills in 1664 and during the next two centuries, the field of cerebral vasculature was fascinated for anatomists. Heubner introduce a more detailed description of the cerebral arteries and with infusion techniques detailed many of the smaller cerebral arteries including the one that bears his name in 1872. Windle reported anomalies and variations in the cerebral vasculature in cadaver examinations during years of 1884-1888. Cerebral vessels and their distinct distribution areas and variable vasculature malformations were described in 1900's. In 1922 Sicard and Forestier showed cerebral arterials for the first time by using lipiodol. In 1927 Egas Monis implant cerebral angiography in clinical use made a revolution in description of cerebral vascular anatomy, aneurysmal and vascularmal formations. After 1960's development in angiography techniques makes easier identification of normal and variable cerebral vascular anatomy. Especially well knowledge of cerebrovascular anatomy, detailed information about arterial perforation bring up protection of vessels during microsurgery. In this article our aim was to present information about central nervous system arterial anatomy, key points during surgery, feding areas of every vessels and clinical pictures due to occlusions of these vessels.
