German term or phrase: sitzt der intrakraniellen Carotisaufzweigung breitbasig auf
intracranial and broad-based are clear... but the rest..

Here is the sentence:
Das Aneurysma sitzt der **sitzt der intrakraniellen Carotisaufzweigung breitbasig auf**

The aneurysm is located in the left internal carotid artery.

Thanks to any medical experts who can shed some light on the "Carotisaufzweigung" and sorting this sentence out.

broad-based aneurysm riding on the intracranial carotid bifurcation
Explanation:
The carotid artery divides into two major branches, the internal and the external carotid artery. "Aufsitzen" basically means that the aneurysm sits on the outer side of this bifurcation, and I think I heard the term "riding on" in this context.
