Case Study
Migration of endovascular coils from aneurysms has been reported in the past. However, we report a case where the entire coil mass migrated out of the aneurysm into the anterior cerebral artery with associated doubling of aneurysm diameter in the intervening two weeks period post-coiling.

    Summary Objective. Operative clipping is the most effective method in the treatment of cerebral giant aneurysms. But about 50% of all giant aneurysms are treatable this way. We want to report about eight patients with giant cerebral aneurysms, which were in our opinion “unclippable”...

    This study evaluated the outcomes of endovascular management for P2-segment aneurysms. From 2003 to 2008, 14 consecutive patients with P2 aneurysms were treated endovascularly by proximal P2 segment occlusion at our institution. The aneurysms included 12 P2a and two P2p aneurysms. Presenting...
