The anterior communication artery (ACOM) connects the right and left anterior cerebral artery and establishes contra-lateral flow, permiting perfusion of brain at both sides. While the artery itself is very short in length and small in size, 35% of ruptured aneurysms are found to form at the ACOM  and these aneurysms also rupture when they are small .
