Endovascular trapping is the preferred treatment method for a vertebral dissecting aneurysm. We describe a case of ruptured dissecting aneurysms located just proximal to the vertebro-basilar junction treated by trapping the dissecting segment and barricading the basilar artery with a stent to protect against coil protrusion. Modified parent artery trapping with a stent barricade allows preservation of the adjoining confluent zone or side branch during endovascular trapping of the vertebral dissection.

    Tortuous vasculature is a common reason for failure to stabilize a guiding catheter in an appropiate position and is associated with a higher incidence of vascular complications. In such a case, the guiding catheter often buckles into the aorta during an attempt to place the balloon or stent. In...
