Treatment of Intracranial Aneurysm with Bare Stent only

By Michael Mu Huo Teng, Chao-Bao Luo, Feng-Chi Chang and Harsan Harsan

Abstract

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
