Typical treatment of intracranial aneurysm includes: surgical clipping, intrasacular packing, and parent artery occlusion. The treatment of a fusiform aneurysm is often parent artery occlusion, and keeping patency of the parent artery is difficult. We report our experience in the treatment of 3 cases of intracranial fusiform aneurysm with stent placement inside the parent artery only, without coil packing of the aneurysm lumen. All 3 patients had a non-hemorrhagic dissecting aneurysm in the vertebral artery. They were treated with 2 Helistents, 3 Neuroform stents, and 2 Neuroform stents, respectively. These aneurysms disappeared after treatment at their follow-up angiograms. Treatment with a bare stent may induce obliteration or reduction in the size of some aneurysms. This technique is useful in the treatment of non-hemorrhagic fusiform-shaped aneurysms or non-hemorrhagic dissecting aneurysms to preserve the patency of these parent arteries.

    After endovascular coil embolization of cerebral aneurysms, coil compaction and late aneurysm recanalization have been ever observed. The HydroCoil Embolic System (HES) was developed to improve the packing efficacy of endovascular treatment of cerebral aneurysms. In this study, we evaluate the...

These flow-diverting devices have a narrow mesh system and lead to aneurysm occlusion by reconstructing the vessel wall and by changing the hemodynamic blood flow within the aneurysm....

    Coil fracture represents a serious device-related complication during coil embolisation of intracranial aneurysms. If the coil cannot be retrieved completely, the loose end floating in the parent vessel can prolapse into the distal part of the vessel and may cause occlusion and brain infarction....

    We propose the combined neurosurgical-endovascular treatment with the balloon occlusion of parent artery during surgery of giant paraclinoid and vertebrobasilar aneurysms, which are unsuitable for a pure endovascular or surgical approach. Between January 2003 and December 2007, we treated...
