Congenital variant: There is no relationship to aneurysm presence, and lifelong collateral flow through other vessels has previously been well established. Stroke risk is based upon presence of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, high triglycerides, high homocysteine, and smoking. Your doctor can screen you for potential future problems. Do not worry about your artery.
